Falkenstein’s brother Bruno, a former commissioner, administered the oath of office on May 27 as their mother, Mary, and the commissioner-to-be’s two daughters and son stood beside him. After taking the oath, Falkenstein thanked his mother.
“If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be who I am today,” he said. He also thanked the residents and his family.
Falkenstein will hold this office until the regular election in March. He told the Gabber Tuesday night he intended to run in that election.
