Fullerton's new city council was set to convene publicly for the first time Tuesday at a special meeting.

At the meeting, the new council planned to select a new mayor pro tem, a position previously held by Don Bankhead, one of three ousted council members. A ceremonial swearing-in for the three new members was also set to take place.

Monday, Travis Kiger, Doug Chaffee and Greg Sebourn were officially sworn-in. They won their city council seats in a recall election fueled by the death of Kelly Thomas, a homeless man who died last year after a confrontation with police.
