Mayor Ed Lee...inauguration tomorrow @ San Francisco City Hall!
Amidst a lot of pomp and circumstance, Ed Lee will be inaugurated into office in a public ceremony at City Hall tomorrow (Sunday January 8th).
The Mayor's handlers noted that the event - to be emceed by former Mayor Willie Brown - will feature music and dance with a spotlight on the Chinese, Mexican, Filipino, Hawaiian, Indian, Indonesian, and Peruvian cultures.
The inauguration will be a reflection of San Francisco's people and the City's "world class" nature, according to a press release, which was dispatched from City Hall at the end the week.
Attendees will also be treated to performances by the San Francisco Boys (and Girls) Choir(s), the San Francisco Symphony, and the celebrated Gay Men's Chorus of San Francisco.
Senator Diane Feinstein is slated to administer Lee's oath of office.
In an election held last fall - during Gavin Newson's second term - Mr. Lee beat out several rivals who were competing for the coveted Mayoral post.
Mr. Lee is expected to complete his full four-year term (God willing!).
