Stanton to be sworn in as Phoenix’s new mayor

Phoenix Mayor-elect Greg Stanton will be sworn in Tuesday as the top municipal leader of America’s sixth-largest city.

He will succeed term-limited Mayor Phil Gordon.

Stanton will be inaugurated at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix.

He is a Democrat who worked previously as a City Council member and for the Arizona attorney general’s office.

Stanton breezed past Republican Wes Gullett in November’s general election runoff.

During the campaign, Stanton said he would work to diversify the city’s economy, improve funding for early childhood education and make after-school programs based more on academics.
