Noelia Corzo and Ray Mueller were sworn Tuesday morning to the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, representing Districts 2 and 3 respectively.

Family, friends, and supporters of the newly-elected Supervisors filled the board chambers, cheering loudly when each finished taking their oaths of office.

Corzo was sworn in first by her son and mother. Elected this November to replace Carole Groom as District 2 Supervisor, who declined to seek re-election after serving three terms, Corzo previously served on the San Mateo-Foster City School Board. She is the first Latina and only woman currently on the Board of Supervisors.

District 2 includes most of Belmont, San Mateo, and Foster City.

In her first remarks as a seated supervisor, she cited her difficult upbringing as the daughter of a single mother as informing her approach to public service.

Mueller was sworn in by his wife and children to represent District 3, which includes Menlo Park, unincorporated coastal communities, Emerald Hills, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside, and parts of Belmont.

Mueller previously served on the Menlo Park City Council. He replaces Don Horsley, who declined to seek re-election after serving three terms on the board.

Mueller thanked his family and constituents for supporting him.

Starting this year, Supervisor Dave Pine was elected by his colleagues to serve as Board President. Supervisor Warren Slocum will served as Vice President.
