Greg Fischer took the oath of office as Louisville’s new mayor during a private ceremony at his home Sunday evening. Fischer officially becomes mayor at 12:01am Monday.

The private swearing-in ensures there is no vacuum of power between then and his public oath of office at noon Monday. The Sunday evening oath was administered by Jefferson Circuit Judge Olu Stevens.

A full day of inaugural activities begins with a breakfast early Monday.
