INDIANAPOLIS — A festive and patriotic atmosphere Wednesday at a political event in Downtown Indianapolis.

Mayor Joe Hogsett and City-County Councilors are now sworn-in for duty.

Judge Sarah Evans Barker presided over the swearing-in ceremony at the Indiana Landmarks Center.

"The elections that brought you here today reflect our community's shared confidence as well as hopes that you will together figure out ways and find paths that will lead to economic prosperity as well as an atmosphere of civility and equal justice for all," Judge Barker said at the ceremony.

Democrats flipped six city-county council seats in the November election, giving them a 20 to five advantage.
