Mayor Jim Lienhoop invites the public to attend a public viewing event of the live stream of the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump and Vice President-Elect and Columbus native, Mike Pence, on Friday, January 20 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Cal Brand Meeting Room at Columbus City Hall, located at 123 Washington Street in Columbus. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch to the viewing party. Light refreshments will be served.
In addition, the City is planning to honor the Vice President-Elect on Friday by placing two signs at the entrances to the City at Indiana 46 and US 31. The signs will be blue with white lettering which will read, “Hometown of Michael R. Pence, United States Vice President”. Department of Public Works Director Bryan Burton worked with the transition team of then-Governor Pence to get input on what would be allowed on the sign. The City will eventually add the Vice-Presidential seal to the sign, after Federal approval has been received.
