Faulconer to be sworn in as mayor Monday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The inauguration of Mayor-elect Kevin Faulconer will take place Monday at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, San Diego city officials announced Tuesday.

The ceremony to formally promote the councilman to the helm of city government is scheduled for 10 a.m. Faulconer defeated colleague David Alvarez by a 52.9 percent to 47.1 percent margin in the Feb. 11 runoff election.

Once he's inaugurated, his council seat will be declared vacant, and a call will be put out for candidates for appointment. The City Council will have 30 days to find a replacement to serve out the remaining eight months or so of his term representing San Diego's beach and bay areas.

City officials have said they won't appoint anyone who plans to run for the seat later this year.

Also Tuesday, Faulconer announced that local political operative Stephen Puetz will be his mayoral chief of staff. He serves in the same capacity in Faulconer's City Council office and managed his recent campaign.

"In his role as chief of staff, he will continue to serve as a close adviser," Faulconer said. "Stephen will oversee a staff that reflects the diversity of our great city and is focused on serving our neighborhoods."

The mayor-elect said he will announce other staff appointments soon.
