Utah inaugurations set for Monday

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah’s highest-ranking elected executives get sworn in on Monday, one with a ceremony at the Utah State Capitol and one with a unique ceremony downtown.

Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor-elect Ben McAdams will step of an old-school bus painted orange at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center at 8:45 a.m. Monday.

The bus was the symbol of his campaign, and now he’s calling it the bipartisan bus. He’ll have a bunch of other elected lawmakers, both Democrat and Republican, with him.

Governor Gary Herbert has been in office since Aug. 2009, and Monday’s inauguration will be his third.

The first came after Jon Huntsman, Jr., retired in 2009, the second after a special election in 2010, making this week’s inauguration his third in four years.

The inauguration will include the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing patriotic tunes, Herbert’s sons singing the national anthem, a National Guard artillery salute and a flyover, plus Herbert’s inaugural address.
