Senator Andy Vidak sworn into office

FRESNO, Calif.

He thanked his family, supporters and the City of Hanford for helping and supporting him throughout his campaign. After weeks of nasty campaigns and a special election the Hanford Republican won the State Senate Seat in 16th district over Kern County Supervisor Leticia Perez.

Vidak says his first order of business is to meet everyone and also he says his mission remains the same.

"It's jobs job jobs, its affordable, reliable water, affordable, reliable energy, we'd like more local control in our schools down here- all important things," Senator Vidak said.

The district boundaries are changing so Vidak will have to run again in 2014.
