BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The new year means new leadership for East Baton Rouge Parish.
Incoming Mayor-President Sharon Weston-Broome hostS her inauguration and celebration ceremony Monday. The evening will begin with the inauguration ceremony inside the Raising Cane's River Center Theatre at 5 p.m. A following celebration ceremony will take place at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center around 6:30 p.m.

Weston-Broome kicked off the 2017 inaugural events on Sunday with the "Celebration of Faith" event held at Star Hill Church in Baton Rouge.
