Hodges takes over as new Minneapolis mayor

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - There's a new person in charge at Minneapolis City Hall.
    
Democrat Betsy Hodges took her oath Thursday as the new mayor, taking over as longtime Mayor R.T. Rybak moves on.  The former Democratic city council member won election in November.
    
While Hodges officially took the reins of the state's largest city, another inauguration ceremony is planned for next Monday along with newly elected members of the city council.
    
Across the Mississippi River, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman was sworn for his third-term. A public inauguration ceremony for Coleman will be held on Friday.
    
In Moorhead, Del Rae Williams is set to become that city's first woman as mayor. She'll be formally sworn in at the Jan. 13 city council meeting.
