Paul Soglin took over as Madison mayor Tuesday, and he's already making some changes.
Soglin was sworn in on Tuesday afternoon at the City-County Building in downtown Madison.
Soglin has promised to make changes from the things outgoing Mayor Dave Cieslewicz was concentrating on, and he was already taking action before the oath Tuesday.
Soglin has already served 14 years in office during two previous terms.
It was a day of tearful endings as Cieslewicz stepped down from his post of eight years.
"To Dianne and everyone on our staff, we will always be a family," said Cieslewicz, holding back tears.
But it was also a day of new, yet renewed, beginnings in the city, as new Mayor Paul Soglin took the oath of office. Soglin takes the reigns of the city for the third time with a council where only three members have worked with anyone else than his predecessor.
