Mark Mitchell has been sworn in as the new mayor of Tempe.

He won the mayor's post in May by beating rival Michael Monti and replaces Hugh Hallman, who didn't seek re-election.

Mitchell is the son of former Tempe Mayor Harry Mitchell and served on the city council for 12 years.

He was sworn in on Monday.

In his inaugural remarks, Mitchell said he would focus on regionalism and on forging partnerships with city and state leaders.

The Arizona Republic reports (http://bit.ly/OoFuE6) that Mitchell plans to convene a mayor's advisory group with members from the business and neighborhood sectors.

On behalf of small businesses struggling in the tough economy, Mitchell plans to form a committee to outline new ways the city can support commerce.
