BOSTON (CBS) — The newest member of the Boston City Council was formally sworn-in Saturday during a special council session.

Tito Jackson officially took over the council seat formally held by Chuck Turner, who’s now serving a federal prison term. Jackson pledged to help bring safer streets, better schools and more jobs to the district.

Jackson says he wants to help District 7 reach its full potential.
