Dan Clodfelter has been sworn in as the fourth mayor of Charlotte since last spring.

 

He replaces Patrick Cannon, who resigned after less than six months in office after he was arrested on federal bribery charges.

Cannon was elected as mayor last November after councilwoman Patsy Kinsey served as interim mayor. Kinsey replaced Anthony Foxx, who resigned the post last year to become U.S. Transportation Secretary in the Obama administration.

Clodfelter took the oath of office Wednesday next to his wife, Elizabeth, and one of his two daughters.

Charlotte's City Council on Monday chose Clodfelter, who has been a state senator since 1999.

He says his highest priority for Charlotte is stability.
