Tim Keller formally took office Friday after a public swearing-in ceremony. However, he opted to be sworn in sooner when outgoing Mayor Richard Berry left the post, so he hosted a private swearing-in at his home Thursday evening.

Re-elected city councilors include Ken Sanchez for District 1. Klarissa Peña for District 3, Diane Gibson for District 7 and Don Harris for District 9. Newly elected City Councilor Cynthia Borrego will join them. She will take Dan Lewis' former spot in District 5.

Earlier Thursday, Keller officially resigned his post as state auditor. It's a position he's held for the past three years.  On Friday, Gov. Susana Martinez selected Bernalillo County Commissioner Wayne Johnson to finish out Keller's term as auditor.
