Former Vice President Joe Biden will preside over the swearing-in ceremony at Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's second inauguration, the mayor's office announced Wednesday.
"I greatly admire Vice President Biden's dedication to our country and its people. I'm so humbled he will preside over my inauguration ceremony and be a part of this special day," Walsh said in a statement.
Biden had equally high praise for Walsh in his statement.
"I'm honored to be able to preside over his inauguration next month so he can continue his tireless work on behalf of the people of Boston."
Biden famously called the wrong Marty Walsh after the mayor's first election in 2013, mistakenly dialing up the number for the political consultant and former Edward Kennedy aide with the same name.
The ceremony will be held on Jan. 1 at 10 a.m. at the Cutler Majestic Theatre on Tremont Street.
