Blonigan Sworn In As Robbinsdale Mayor; Webb, Kline Also Take Oath
With his mother looking on, Bill Blonigan took the oath of office outside Robbinsdale City Hall on Tuesday. Blonigan has served on the Robbinsdale City Council since 1981 before he was elected mayor last fall.
Blonigan told CCX News that his first order of business is to work with fellow council members, city staff and a consultant this month to establish objectives and priorities.
“I feel like I’ve always been a part of Robbinsdale. And it’s an honor to serve all the people past, present and in the future. We’ve got to look at all those types of people in order to do the best job for this city,” he said.
Blonigan isn’t the only person moving into a new role on the council. Two new council members were also sworn-in. Tyler Kline will fill Blonigan’s former Ward 1 seat.
And Sheila Webb will take over the Ward 2 council seat, replacing Dan Rogan. Webb is making history as the first person of color to serve on the Robbinsdale City Council.
