      Woonsocket's new mayor to be sworn in

      The newly elected mayor of Woonsocket will be sworn in Tuesday.

      State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt defeated incumbent Mayor Leo Fontaine last month and will be sworn in at the Stadium Theater by House Speaker Gordon Fox.{} She will serve a three-year term as the city transitions to even-year elections.

      Baldelli-Hunt is also expected to submit her resignation from her seat in the House of Representatives before the ceremony.

      A primary for that seat could come as early as January.
