Published: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 01:09 PM.

Lt. Gov.-elect Dan Forest and a number of area officials have indicated they plan to attend the ceremony, which is open to the public.

Sanderson ran for the seat held by Jean Preston of Carteret County, who decided to retire as an elected official. The Arapahoe resident and Havelock businessman won the seat handily in November 2012 over Democratic opponent Greg Muse.

Speciale of New Bern is a retired Marine and won the redistricted District 3 House seat as his first elected office. He has previously sought a General Assembly seat, is former Craven County Republican Party chairman and is one of the founders of the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association.

A reception follows the official ceremony at the tourist center.
