NEW MILFORD — Mayor Pete Bass was sworn into office Thursday evening at the same spot in town he announced his candidacy for mayor in July.

On the town bandstand, Bass, a Republican, was sworn in by State Rep. Bill Buckbee, R-New Milford, and blessed by both a rabbi and a priest. Town Council members and new members to several town boards were also sworn in.

Bass, who started work Friday morning, defeated one-term Mayor David Gronbach on Nov 7. Some 100 people attended his swearing in.
