Murray swearing inSEATTLE – A new year means a new mayor for the city of Seattle. Mayor Ed Murray posted a photo on Facebook, taking the oath of office last night in Capitol Hill.

Murray took a very personal approach, using a bible printed in 1850 and using beads from a rosary his grandmother brought into this country when she immigrated here in 1905. The tie he wore was the same one he wore when he first took the oath of elected office in 1996.

In a public address posted online, Mayor Murray said he wants to see all Seattle residents working together to better the community.

“Seattle has always been a place where we are able to overcome our differences,” Mayor Murray explained, “See with a fresh pair of eyes, and make progress together as a community.”

His official inauguration ceremony is Monday afternoon.
