Justice Robin Davis took the oath for another term on the court after her election victory.
Other West Virginia constitutional officers sworn in Monday were also familiar faces.
State Treasurer John Perdue stands to become West Virginia's longest-tenured chief financial officer. Perdue was first elected to office in 1996.
"I am very honored and humbled that the voters have once again entrusted me with the state's finances," said Perdue, who defeated Republican challenger Mike Hall, who serves as state Senate minority leader. "I have always strived to bring the Treasurer's Office up to current technological and professional standards."
If Perdue completes his term, he will have served 20 years -- two more than former state Treasurer Richard E. Talbott, who held the office from 1932 to 1950. Only five state treasurers have served for 10 years or more.
"It's been a good 16 years, but we don't rest on our laurels," Perdue said.
Secretary of State Natalie Tennant was sworn in Monday by Penney Barker, a notary public who oversees the office's business licensing division.
Tennant, who started a second four-year term, said Barker and other employees have helped the division make it easier for businesses to locate and operate in West Virginia.
"Business and licensing has been completely reworked in the past four years, and it was because of hard work from people like Penney and members of her division," Tennant said. "It is now easier to start and run a business and be successful in West Virginia because of streamlined processes like online annual report filing."
West Virginia Auditor Glen Gainer also is no stranger to the state Capitol. Gainer, who took the oath of office Monday after winning re-election in November, started as state auditor 20 years ago.
Gainer said West Virginia's $110 million Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP, project should be up and running by July 2014. The project will connect state agency computers so they can share personnel information and financial data.
"We will be streamlining and modernizing how we do state government," Gainer said Monday. "It will make state government run much more efficiently."Reach Eric Eyre at erice...@wvgazette.com or 304-348-4869.
