Bernalillo County got something of a government makeover on the first day of the new year.

Ten officials were sworn into office during a noon ceremony at the county headquarters, including two new commissioners, a sheriff and an assessor.

The two new commissioners — both Democrats — keep the five-person governing board leaning blue.

The new sheriff — Democrat John Allen, who has said he’s proud to be the first Black sheriff elected in the county — won his seat on a campaign that called for sheriff’s office reform. He’s also said he was previously pushed out of the office for disagreeing with now-former sheriff Manual Gonzales.

All together, the officials sworn in on Sunday were:

Barbara Baca — District 1 commissioner

Eric Olivas — District 5 commissioner

John Allen — sheriff

Damian Lara — assessor

Donna Gonzales — deputy assessor

Karen Montaño — deputy assessor

Cristy Carbón-Gaul — probate court judge

Johann Jareno — undersheriff

Aaron Williamson — undersheriff

Hollie Anderson — sheriff’s office major
