There were smiles aplenty during the Dec. 14 Vallejo school board meeting as three trustees were sworn into office.
John Fox, first elected to the school board in 2018, was sworn in for a second term after defeating fellow incumbent Tony Gross to represent Trustee Area 5: Southeast Vallejo.
Glenn Amboy and Carlos Flores were also sworn in as the newest members of the five-person board.
Amboy was automatically appointed to the position when he was the only person to run to represent Trustee Area 3, which encompasses most of East Vallejo, including the Hiddenbrooke development. He replaced Trustee Tony Ubalde, who decided not to seek another term.
