LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Eric Garcetti is now Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The former City Council member took his public oath of office as the 42nd mayor of the city of Los Angeles on the steps of City Hall. Ceremonial swearing-ins also took place for Ron Galperin as controller, Mike Feuer as city attorney, and eight members of the City Council, including six newcomers.
The swearing-in ceremony was followed by an outdoor inaugural party described by 42-year-old Garcetti as a “party in the park” at Grand Park where he is expected to join supporters. Those festivities will kick off at 7 p.m. with a performance by Moby.
Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was also master of ceremonies.
