PHOTOS: Fire Commissioner Avi Lieber Sworn in

Avi Lieber, who won the seat in the Fire Commissioner’s Office last month, was sworn in moments ago.

As earlier reported, the second seat was too close to call, and it was declared a tie.

According to the initial numbers following the election, Denise Gregory received 383 votes, and Larry Loigman received 382. However, from the ballots up in question, Loigman received two additional votes, and Gregory one more, making it a tie.

A recount for the seat is underway.
