Janelle Astorga, representing APS District 1, Ronalda Tome-Warito, representing District 2, and Heather R. Benavidez, representing District 4, were elected on Nov. 7 and officially take office on Jan. 1. They will take part in another swearing-in ceremony at 5 p.m. on Jan. 3, prior to their first board meeting, when they will elect 2024 officers.
