Warwick's first female mayor took office Tuesday night.
Juanita Kinchen took the oath of office before a crowded room of Warwick residents.
In speaking to FOX 31, Kinchen states, "I am not afraid of hard work."
The Warwick native says at the top of her list of things to do is create an educated community and bring jobs into the area.
The newly appointed mayor says she never thought that she would become the first female mayor, but now that she is in the seat, she is up for the challenge.
