There's a new mayor in town. On Thursday, Betsy Hodges officially took the reins from outgoing Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak at an event called the "Kids Inauguration."
In her official act as mayor, Hodges thanked her predecessor, her family and the voters.
"Thank you to the people of Minneapolis for trusting me with this leadership, and trusting me to take us into the future of the city, all of us together," Hodges said. "Thank you."
Thursday's oath kicks off a 10-day citywide tour called "One Minneapolis," which will include a more traditional inauguration and speech next Monday at City Hall.
