For some Charlottesville officials, a major item on the list of things to do before Christmas was getting sworn in for an elected office. City Councilman-elect Bob Fenwick (pictured right) was among those who took the oath Friday from Clerk of Circuit Court Llezelle Dugger. Fenwick’s four-year term will begin January 1st. That’s when he gets the seat that fellow Democrat Dave Norris will vacate on New Year’s Eve. Fenwick and current Vice-Mayor Kristin Szakos (pictured left) won two council seats on November 5th. Dugger also administered the oath of office to City School Board members Ned Michie, Juandiego Wade, and Leah Puryear. They were joined by constitutional officers Dave Chapman (Commonwealth’s Attorney), James Brown (Sheriff), Jason Vandever (Treasurer), and Todd Divers (Commissioner of the Revenue). Divers was elected to succeed Lee Richards, who is retiring after spending decades in City Hall.
