Newton – This morning, Newton Mayor Setti Warren and Mayor-elect Ruthanne Fuller hosted a press availability to discuss the transition of government.
“I would like to congratulate Ruthanne on her historic electoral victory Tuesday night,” said Mayor Warren. “Her position as the first woman to be mayor of Newton is an exciting moment for us all. The successful transition of government is vital to the city’s operations, which is why over the last few months we have been diligently preparing for this moment. I am personally committed to be available to Mayor-elect Fuller as she needs and we are all ready to provide her with the information and resources that she needs to succeed.”
As part of the transition process, Mayor-elect Fuller will have office space in City Hall, scheduled meetings with department heads, and access to the regular cross-department meetings that occur on a weekly basis. She will also be provided a comprehensive transition memo, outlining the structure, function, and projects of each department.
“I want to thank Mayor Warren for his leadership of Newton these past eight years," said Mayor-elect Fuller. "Thanks to him Newton is in a very strong position. I am honored that Newton residents have given me the opportunity to serve as the city’s next mayor. I look forward to working alongside Mayor Warren to ensure a smooth transition of government. I’d like to thank Mayor Warren and his team for their commitment to this process and the preparations they have made. I will be in City Hall regularly to meet with department heads, city staff members, and the Mayor to learn more about ongoing projects and operations so that on January 1st  I can successfully assume leadership of the city.”
The seamless continuation of city services, preservation of public safety, and maintenance of the city’s finances are key components to the transition.
