For the first time in the history of this cowboy town, two women were sworn in as City Council members. San Juan, which was incorporated in 1961 but was founded in the late 1700s, was the last city in Orange County to open its council doors to women. Collene Campbell and Carolyn Nash broke the male dominance when they were sworn in Tuesday. "They are both strong-willed and outspoken and have a great deal of pride and that's good," said Mayor Gil Jones.
