Harp To Be Sworn In As New Haven’s 50th Mayor

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ State Sen. Toni Harp is being sworn in as the city of New Haven’s 50th mayor.

The Democrat will also be the first new chief elected official of the Elm City in 20 years. She replaces the outgoing Mayor John DeStefano, who chose not to run for re-election.

An inauguration ceremony was planned Wednesday at noon at Hill Regional Career High School. Besides the new mayor, the new city clerk and all 30 members of the Board of Aldermen will be sworn into office. The event is open to the public.

Harp, who will become the city’s first female male, has served in the Connecticut state Senate since 1993, representing the 10th senatorial district. A special election is required to fill her seat, which she plans to vacate.
