(TOLEDO) - Toledo's new mayor officially takes office on Tuesday. Lucas County Treasurer Wade Kapszukiewicz begins his mayoral administration by taking the oath of office at 4:30pm.

Kapszukiewicz beat incumbent Paula Hicks-Hudson in November's general election. He ran on a platform of change but has already announced he will retain Toledo's police and fire chiefs. Several other positions have changed and an appointment of a new chief of staff is being finalized.

Later this month, activities to celebrate the mayor's inauguration will take place including an Inter-Faith Prayer Service and Family Fun Day. Those activities happen on January 20 and 21.
