Detroit Mayor Dave Bing will serve as master of ceremonies during the inauguration of Republican Gov.-elect Rick Snyder on Jan. 1.

Bing is a Democrat, making Thursday's announcement a show of bipartisanship.

Nonpartisan Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell will lead the invocation and closing prayer at the ceremony scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. on New Year's Day outside the state Capitol.

The inauguration ceremony is open to the public and is free of charge.

Snyder is scheduled to have a receiving line inside the Capitol after the ceremony.

An inaugural celebration at Michigan State University's Wharton Center is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Jan. 1. A $125 ticket is required.

The inaugural events will be paid for through private donations and ticket sales.

    RINO. The man donated to Democrats in prior elections. The Republicans that supported him deserve what they get when he really shows his true colors.
