WATERLOO (AP) -

Quentin Hart is more focused on how to serve his city well than he is on becoming Waterloo's first black mayor.
   The 44-year-old Hart is set to be sworn into office Monday after winning a runoff election last month.
   Hart, who served on Waterloo's city council for the past eight years, says others will have to judge the historical significance of his election.
   Hart says he hopes to be remembered as a hard-working, fair mayor who led Waterloo in a positive direction.
   Hart's supporters hope he will be able to unify the city.
   Latanya Graves leads the Black Hawk County NAACP chapter and worked with Hart at Hawkeye Community College. She says his election should help bring the city together and believes his election will help bring Waterloo together.
