The balance of power on the San Bernardino City Council is expected to change today as Councilman John Valdivia is sworn into office.

Valdivia, who unseated Tobin Brinker in the Nov. 8 elections, is an ally of City Attorney Jim Penman. Until now, four of the seven council members, including Brinker, had been aligned with Mayor Pat Morris.

Now four of the seven council members will be aligned with Penman.

Besides Valdivia, there will be Robert Jenkins, Chas Kelley and Wendy McCammack.
