(BLOGS.WSJ) — Former President Bill Clinton will swear in Bill de Blasio as New York City’s 109th mayor during Wednesday’s inaugural ceremony at City Hall, the mayor-elect’s transition team said Saturday.
Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state and a former U.S. senator from New York, will be joining her husband at the noon event. Mr. de Blasio previously worked for the couple, serving in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development during Mr. Clinton’s administration and later managing Mrs. Clinton’s successful Senate campaign in 2000.
Mr. Clinton will swear-in Mr. de Blasio with a bible once owned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the transition team said. The bible is on loan from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park.
