State Sen. Toni Harp will be sworn in as New Haven’s first female mayor on New Year’s Day.

The ceremony will be at 12 noon at Hill Regional Career High School, which was designed by Harp’s late husband, Wendell.

Harp’s seat in the state Senate will be filled in a special election that will likely take place by late February, said Senate Majority Leader Marty Looney, a New Haven Democrat.

After Harp steps down, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has 10 days to call for a special election. That election would then be held 46 days after Malloy’s announcement – meaning it would likely be mid-to-late February.

“The new senator will most likely not be in place for the start of the session” on Wednesday, February 5, Looney told Capitol Watch.

Looney was one of Harp’s strongest supporters in a contentious primary and general election that included charges and countercharges.

“Toni and I sat next to each other for the last 21 years, so I am going to miss her,” Looney told Capitol Watch.
