LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Recently elected Tippecanoe county officials were sworn in at the courthouse. 18 people raised their hands and took an oath to serve to the best of their abilities. County Clerk Christa Coffey says this is a day where both parties can come together and celebrate the election process.
"It's kind of a nice day to remember that we live in a great country. There aren't protests. There aren't dramatic effects. We did have a delegation here from China on election day. One of the questions they asked was, 'Where is the security?' They are used to that type of environment. Trying to explain to them that, in Indiana especially, we don't have those issues. It's just a great reminder of the democracy we live in," said Christa Coffey.
All of those sworn in will take office January first.
