Anchorage, Alaska, mayor sworn in from Hawaii

Anchorage mayor wears Hawaiian shirt as he's sworn in long-distance from Honolulu By The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Wearing a Hawaiian shirt, Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan took the oath of office on Monday in Honolulu.

Sullivan had a previously scheduled family vacation to Hawaii. The city calls for a mayor to be sworn in on July 1 or as soon thereafter as practical. He doesn't return to Alaska until July 16.

He arranged to have a live video link established between Anchorage City Hall and a lawyer's office in Honolulu.



An Anchorage judge administered the oath, and Sullivan repeated it in Hawaii. Once that was completed, he donned a lei and then signed forms that were notarized by the Honolulu attorney.

Sullivan signed off the broadcast by saying, "Aloha."
