Monday was Inauguration Day at the Pierce County Courthouse, as four officials each started a new four-year term. Pierce County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Boles gave the Oath of Office to County Clerk Jamie Feuerhelm, Register of Deeds Vicki Nelson, Treasurer Phyllis Beastrom and new District Attorney Sean Froelich. Feuerhelm was first elected in 1996, Nelson in 2004 and Beastrom in 2008. Froelich was elected to his post last August when he defeated incumbent John O’Boyle. Monday was his first official day on the job. From left to right are: Boles, Feuerhelm, Nelson, Beastrom and Froelich.
