Coble Sworn In as Raleigh Mayor

Posted December 6, 1999

— Raleigh's new mayor is taking office. Paul Coble was sworn in Tuesday morning, during a ceremony at Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium.

Coble won a very close race last month against fellow council member Stephanie Fanjul. The race was so close, Fanjul asked for a recount.

Fanjul conceded after the Wake County Board of Elections completed its recount. Coble ended up winning by just 264 votes.
