WASHINGTON — Muriel Bowser is set to begin her second term as D.C.’s mayor, with a swearing-in ceremony Wednesday morning at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
Attorney General Karl Racine, council chairman Phil Mendelson, and six other council members will also be sworn-in during Wednesday’s ceremony.
The event starts at 9:30 a.m.
Street closures and parking restrictions have been posted around the convention center from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the day of the event:
- L Street between 7th and 9th streets, Northwest
- West curb of 7th Street, NW blocks 1000 and 1100
- East curb of 9th Street, NW blocks 1000 and 1100

Bowser became the first woman re-elected to the mayor’s office in a landslide on Nov. 5, securing almost 80 percent of the vote with a 70 point lead over independent candidates Ann Wilcox and Dustin Canter, as well as Libertarian candidate Martin Moulton.
The ceremony will be streamed live at the D.C. government’s website.
