Mayor Mike Houston and 12 other Springfield City officials, including aldermen and the city clerk and treasurer, swore an oath of office Friday at Sangamon Auditorium for the City of Springfield Inaugural Ceremony. After the ceremony, Houston took time with the press to talk about why he chose Mark Mahoney to be the new public works director, the first weekend in office and what it is like to be elected mayor for a third time decades after serving two consecutive terms.
