They pledged to work together for the betterment of the community and carry on the traditions that make Brentwood a strong community, all while striving to move the borough forward.
Brentwood's recently elected council members and Mayor Dennis Troy were sworn into office Monday night.
John Frombach, Rich Schubert and Dean Trent were elected in November to four-year terms on council. Dr. Robert Pasquantonio was elected to a two-year term on council. Ann Schade, who was elected to a four-year term, was absent Monday.
Being a Brentwood resident is a point of pride for both newly elected officials and incumbents, they said.
“I'm very, very proud to say, not only am I from Brentwood, but I live in Brentwood,” said Troy, a Republican.
Troy, who has been known throughout his life as “the Brentwood guy,” said he will keep party affiliations aside and work with all council members.
“What matters is that we all care about Brentwood,” Troy said.
Marty Vickless was appointed council president on Monday by his colleagues for 2014. Frombach was appointed as vice president and Schubert as president pro-tem.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
