Duluth, Minn (NNCNOW.com) - A week after his win, newly elected St. Louis County Commissioner, Patrick Boyle was inaugurated into office for his term on the board.

Boyle was sworn in by St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin in the breakfast room of Glensheen to represent the county's second district.

Boyle won the seat on January 14th, a rare midwinter special election over challenger Jim Stauber by 65 percent.

Boyle stepped down from his second district Duluth City Council seat to take the commissioner position.

He says he looks forward to serving his constituents and working with people across the county.

"Getting in there and meeting folks in the county and administration and the workers along with the other county board members especially those on the Range. I would like to spend a day with each of them and have them take me around and show me their infrastructure and ways to improve on that in their area," said Boyle.

Boyle will begin serving district two beginning on January 28th at the county's regular scheduled meeting.
