Mayor-elect Parker to take oath in private

December 29, 2009 4:05:52 AM PST
Mayor-elect Annise Parker will take the oath of office in a private ceremony on Saturday morning. Parker's spokesperson says she wants to keep the event private because of the huge price tag a public weekend ceremony would cost. She also said Parker doesn't want to take attention away from Monday's city hall inauguration of newly elected officeholders.

Parker and Controller-elect Ronald Green will take the oath at 9:30am at City Hall.
