A big day for Newton Falls's next Mayor, a council person, and a school board member as the three were administered their oaths of office by an Ohio Supreme Court Justice.
The Newton Falls Mayor Elect David Hanson took his oath of office with his wife and son next to him.
The oath was administered by Ohio Supreme Court Justice Melody J. Stewart.
Hanson shares his priorities once he takes his seat as mayor in January.
"Economic development is the biggest thing that we need, and jobs of course. The police department, everyone wants the police department back, so that will be the first priority," said Mayor-Elect David Hanson.
The State Supreme Court Justice has advice for those taking office.
"You work for the people. You are supposed to do things not in a political partisan way, not in a way that benefits you individually. You're a public servant, and you should work to do things that better the community, Even if you have to kind of have reconciliation and have differences move forward for the people," said Ohio Supreme Court Justice Melody J. Stewart.
 President of the Youngstown Warren Chamber of Commerce Guy Coviello spoke about advancements in economic development.
Retired YSU President and former YSU, and OSU Coach Jim Tressel gave an inspirational speech about being the best leader, having the best team, the best family, and the best of anything.
The Keynote speaker James Tressel told the crowd a great work ethic is a must, along with talent or or cognitive ability,  curiosity about how to improve, grit or resilience, and the number one ingredient for success is selflessness.
"I remember being here when we did the Christmas tree lighting one time. It just felt like a Hallmark movie. It's just a fun town, great people," Retired YSU President Jim Tressel said.
Supreme Court Justice Stewart also administered the oath of office to newly elected officials, Newton Falls Council member Brian Axiotis, and School Board member Mark Stimpert.
All are looking forward to progress in their paths ahead.
