Mayor, City Council members to be sworn in tonight at 6

Mayor-elect Jake Day and the City Council members will be sworn in Monday, in a ceremony attended by Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot, who will be guest speaker, as well as family members and supporters.

The event will be at 6 p.m. at Fire Station 16 on Cypress Street.

Mark Bowen, Clerk of the Circuit Court, will swear in the mayor and five City Council members separately.

Each will repeat the standard oath, vowing to “support the Constitution of the United States” and be “faithful and bear true allegiance to the state of Maryland and support the Constitution and laws thereof.”

The headquarters station is located at 325 Cypress St. The event will be broadcast live on PAC 14.

Newcomer Muir Boda will represent District 2 on the City Council. Incumbent Jack Heath, will have District 3; outgoing Mayor Jim Ireton, District 4; and incumbent Laura Mitchell, who, like Day, ran unopposed, District 5.

After the new members are sworn, they will hold a brief organizational meeting in which a council president and council vice president are selected.
