MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A new mayor is set to take office in New Hampshire's largest city.
Manchester Mayor-elect Joyce Craig will be sworn into office at a public ceremony at the Radisson Hotel at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
In the November election, Craig, a Democrat, beat four-term Republican Mayor Ted Gatsas.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan will introduce Craig before her inauguration speech.
Craig, a former alderman, has said her priorities as mayor will be to improve city schools, reduce crime and to address the opioid crisis.
