NORWALK, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Friends, family and politicians were on hand at City Hall Tuesday as the new mayor of Norwalk was sworn into office.

As WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported, the Norwalk High School String Quartet played in the background as Mayor Harry Rilling was sworn in by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.

The new mayor seemed especially proud to have Gov. Malloy personally swear him into office, Schneidau reported.

Rilling, the city’s former police chief of 17 years, pledged to work with City Council members in a nonpartisan way.  He was also met with a round of applause when he promised to keep city taxes in check, Schneidau reported.

Malloy, a former mayor of Stamford, told Rilling, “from personal experience, you are about to embark on one of the best jobs in politics,” Schneidau reported.
