Jenny Durkan will be sworn in Tuesday afternoon as Seattle mayor and will make a few visits to city neighborhoods.

The results of the Nov. 7 general election, in which Durkan garnered 56.3 percent of the vote over opponent Cary Moon, are set to be officially certified at 3 p.m.

After that, Durkan plans to be sworn in and travel to several Seattle neighborhoods.

Durkan, who was appointed a U.S. attorney by President Barack Obama, will be the first woman mayor in Seattle since Bertha Knight Landes, who won the city’s highest office in 1926 and served until 1928.

Durkan is being sworn in much earlier than previous mayors because former Mayor Ed Murray resigned in September, hours after a fifth child sex-abuse allegation surfaced.

Here’s where Durkan plans to be today:

3:30 p.m. (event begins at 3 p.m.): Rainier Beach, at the Ethiopian Community Center, 8323 Rainier Ave. S.

4:45 p.m. (event begins at 4:15 p.m.): West Seattle, at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

6:15 p.m. (event begins at 5:45 p.m.): International District, at the Wing Luke Museum, 719 S. King St.

7:30 p.m. (event begins at 7 p.m.): Phinney Ridge, at the Phinney Neighborhood Association, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.

8:30 p.m. (event begins at 8 p.m.): Lake City, at the Elliott Bay Public House and Brewery, 12537 Lake City Way N.E.

You can watch Durkan take the oath of office live at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Teresa Mosqueda will be sworn in Tuesday afternoon as the newest member of the Seattle City Council. Mosqueda defeated Jon Grant with 59.9 percent of the vote to win Position 8, a citywide seat.

She’ll take over from Kirsten Harris-Talley, a temporary council member appointed last month when Tim Burgess left his seat to stand in as mayor.

Mosqueda, who most recently worked as the political and strategic campaign director for the Washington State Labor Council, will take her oath of office at City Hall.
