Bill Di Blasio

The first day of the year saw New York City get a new mayor and a new political attitude, with a party-atmosphere inauguration of the first Democrat mayor in 20 years. Democrat royalty turned out to celebrate, with former president Bill Clinton swearing in Bill de Blasio from Brooklyn as the 109th mayor of New York City in a ceremony at City Hall.
