David Grosso is set to be sworn in as the newest member of the D.C. Council.
Grosso, an independent, defeated incumbent Michael A. Brown in November to win an at-large council seat.
Grosso is an attorney and former staff member for Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who represents the District of Columbia in Congress.
He has said education and ethics reform will be his top priorities. During the campaign, he called Brown unfit to serve because of a string of personal financial problems.
Five incumbent councilmembers will also be sworn in to new terms Wednesday: Yvette Alexander, Marion Barry, Muriel Bowser, Jack Evans and Vincent Orange. The ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
