    Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser speaks after taking the oath of office at the District of Columbia Mayoral Inauguration ceremony at the Convention Center in Washington, Friday, Jan. 2, 2015.

    D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser called for the nation's capital to invest in schools, public safety, infrastructure and people in her second State of the District address.

    In the speech Tuesday evening, Bowser urged residents to balance change with preservation and growth.

    She said the city will increase its education by $75 million over last year, the largest investment in public education in the District's history.

    Bowser says the city will continue to implement policies and practices that keep the trust between residents and law enforcement, including a body camera program.
