Venango County officials sworn in

Several Venango County elected officials were sworn in to new terms Monday. They are (back, from left) register and recorder Susan Hannon, district attorney Shawn White, district judge Matthew Kirtland, sheriff Eric Foy and coroner Christina Rugh. Pictured in the front is Marie Veon, who was sworn in to serve as a county judge for at least the next two years. Foy and Hannon were elected to their fourth terms in November, and White and Rugh secured their third terms as they were all unopposed. Kirtland, whose district is Franklin-based, was also unopposed.
