Mayor Joyce Craig laid out her priorities for the new year as she was sworn in Tuesday to serve a second term as the 48th mayor of the Queen City.
Craig took her oath of office, administered by her husband, attorney Michael Craig, during inaugural ceremonies at the Rex Theatre. Then the mayor told a large gathering of friends, family and state and local officials that she believes Manchester officials and residents are ready “to work together and move our city forward.”
“By building upon past successes, acknowledging our challenges, and working together, we must enact policies that help lift up all of our residents,” said Craig. “As I said two years ago, this work will not be easy or quick, but it is essential. I look forward to going to work, every day, to serve the people of this city — the city that made me who I am today.”
