Congresswoman-elect Claudia Tenney is preparing to take office in the new year and a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony was held Tuesday night at Vernon Down Hotel.

Supreme Court Justice Deborah Karalunas administered the oath of office in front of a crowd of Tenney supporters.

Tenney defeated Democrat Kim Myers and Independent Martin Babinec in November to win New York's 22nd congressional district seat.
