New York City’s new mayor Eric Adams was sworn into office on January 1 in Times Square at midnight, minutes after the crystal ball fell.
The 110th mayor of New York, a Democrat, took the oath of office, holding a framed photo of his mother, Dorothy, and placing his hand on a family Bible.
“I, Eric Adams, swear that I will uphold the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of New York, and the Charter of the City of New York, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of the Mayor of New York City, to the best of my ability For, so help me Lord,” he repeated after Associate Justice Sylvia Hinds-Radicks.
Adams, 61, said on Twitter that his administration is “absolutely ready to hit the ground running.”
The retired New York Police Department captain, who assumed a public safety message during his campaign, will be the second black mayor in the city’s history after the late David Dinkins.
He defeated Curtis Sliva, the Republican mayoral candidate, in the November election.
