CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Marni Sawicki has been sworn in as the first female Mayor of Cape Coral.

Sawicki beat out current Mayor John Sullivan in the general election earlier this month by just 121 votes.

Sullivan is now calling for a re-count, and filed a lawsuit claiming misconduct of election officials and voting system defects.
