Following a sometimes-tumultuous aldermanic race in Brentwood's Ward 1, a close one in Ward 4, and two uncontested races, the four aldermen were sworn in.
City administrator Bola Akande read the certified election results, then Maureen Saunders (Ward 1), Cindy Manestar (Ward 2), Andy Leahy (Ward 3) and Patrick Toohey (Ward 4) were sworn in, and walked behind the platform and took their seats.
