BRAWLEY — Two City Council members who drew no opposition for this year's council elections were sworn in during a council meeting on Tuesday.
Councilmen John Benson and Steve Vasquez were sworn into office Tuesday night before the council meeting started.
"It's the easiest election I've ever had. I felt good," said Benson.
"I would hope to continue to present kind of a business perspective on the council for things like the Brawley beef plant and those sort of things," said Benson.
"We want Brawley to grow. We've been kind of behind the gross curve from everybody in the Southend," said Benson.
He also said he would like to concentrate on issues such as reducing impact fees for new businesses.
"I think it's important we not tax developers and drive them away," said Benson.
"The tax fees are intended to contribute to the city's government, not drive away businesses," said Benson.
