Gavin Newsom postpones swearing-in ceremony

Monday, January 03, 2011

Lt. Governor-elect Gavin Newsom will not be sworn-into his new office Monday.

Instead, the San Francisco mayor has scheduled an inaugural ceremony one week from Monday. However, a spokesman says it might happen sooner. Newsom has decided to hold off taking his new office until the newly-elected board of supervisors selects an interim mayor to fill out the rest of his term.

Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado, the Republican Newsom defeated in November, will remain on the job until Newsom takes the oath of office.
