The job of Mayor of Stockton has probably never been tougher. The city remains in bankruptcy and it is plagued with a high crime rate.

Stockton Mayor-elect Anthony Silva says he is ready to face the challenges, and crime is at the top of his list.

SILVA: "We had 71 homicides last year, probably close to 400 folks shot, I am really going to be supporting initiative programs that will reduce crime and whatever resources I can give to the police officers I am going to do it."

Because a large crowd is expected, Silva along with 2 new council members will be sworn in at the county administration building. Silva has chosen a former San Francisco mayor to administer the oath.
 
SILVA: "I have Willie Brown coming to swear me in who is one of the most respected mayors in California's history."
 
The swearing in ceremony starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
