Mary Cheh takes office

According to the Washington Post, in a private ceremony this morning, Adrian Fenty, Mary Cheh and others officially took their oaths of office:

Gray --who replaced outgoing council chair Linda W. Cropp (D) -- was sworn in next, with his daughter standing next to him. Three new council members, Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3), Harry Thomas Jr. (D-Ward 5) and Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6), also took the oath of office, as did returning incumbent council members David A. Catania (I-At Large), Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) and Phil Mendelson (D-At Large).

Within 10 minutes, the ceremony was over and the new D.C. leadership posed for pictures and retired to the judge's chambers to sign official documents.
