When Eric Garcetti is sworn into office later today to become Los Angeles' 42nd mayor, Lily Newman, a fifth-grader at Porter Ranch Community School, will be there.

Lily will be leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Lilly first met Garcetti when he visited her class to learn about the school's Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program. Garcetti later visited Porter Ranch for a community meeting and was greeted by Lily, who was holding a jar of change she collected from her friends to support his campaign.
