Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed sworn in for 2nd term

ATLANTA (AP) -

Atlanta's mayor is kicking off his second term in office.

Mayor Kasim Reed is giving an inaugural address after being sworn in Monday along with members of Atlanta's City Council. Voters elected Reed to another four-year term last November.

Reed's top priority during his second term will be tackling a nearly $1 billion backlog of road projects, pothole repairs and other infrastructure needs. The mayor plans to seek a bond referendum worth up to $250 million, which voters would have to approve in order to fund the project.

An inaugural reception for the public is scheduled to be held at Atlanta City Hall early Monday evening.
