City Council President Shannon Hardin was sworn in to continue serving on city council Saturday by Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Jaiza Page during a brief ceremony outside First Congregational Church Downtown.

It took place before a small group of volunteers after Hardin had helped serve Christmas meals to the needy as part of the church's Bethlehem on Broad Street program, which provides a full day of fellowship, including a hot meal, to as many as 600 needy individuals annually.

Hardin was part of a team of three Democrats, also including Nick Bankston and Lourdes Barroso de Padilla, who took all three of the open seats on the seven-member council in November's election.
