Former Miami Beach mayor swears in son Dan Gelber

He was mayor once. Now at 98, he swore his son into the same office. Seymour Gelber stood in front of a packed chamber at Miami Beach City Hall where he once presided as mayor. Now 98, with a dose of pride and humor, he swore his son Dan into the office he once held, commending him for his record of public service.
