Mayor-Elect Michael Brennan will be sworn in at noon tomorrow, Monday December 5th at city hall as in past years. The reception will take place at the Ocean Gateway Terminal between 6-9 pm, rather than at the State of Maine Room at city hall as is traditionl. This change in location and time has been changed to allow more people to attend because of the larger venue and after work hours.

Music will be provided and refreshments will be supplied by the city-owned Barron Center. $5,000. has been set aside for the event as in past years.

Brennan is the first popularly elected mayor in Portland since 1923. It’s a four year term with a salary of $66,000.
