Though she’s already been officially sworn into office, newly elected state Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach) recited her oath again Sunday during a public ceremony in Newport Beach.

The event at the Marina Park Community Center was attended by several local leaders and featured remarks from Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood). Retired federal judge Lynne Riddle administered the oath.

Petrie-Norris defeated incumbent Matthew Harper (R-Huntington Beach) in the Nov. 6 election to represent the 74th Assembly District, which covers an area that includes Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach.
