Monday, the city of Lansing will swear in its first new mayor in a dozen years. 

Former State Rep. Andy Schor will take his oath of office during a midday ceremony at the Lansing Center. 

Schor won November's general election with nearly three-fourths of the votes cast.

The soft-spoken Schor replaces the at-times combative Virg Bernero, who has sat in the mayor's office since 2006. 

Among the challenges the new mayor faces is tackling Lansing's looming legacy costs.

Four weeks from today, Lansing voters will elect the capitol city’s first new mayor in a dozen years.

The next mayor will be a departure in style from the current holder of the office.
