SAXONBURG, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania mayor is begging voters not to support her Nov. 5 because she and her new husband recently found a "dream home" in a nearby township.
The Valley News Dispatch of Tarentum (http://bit.ly/1bFl9nE ) reports Saxonburg Mayor Jody Pflueger (FLOO'-ger) announced Friday that she's resigning. Pflueger, a Democrat, was elected mayor of the borough about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, in 2009.
Pflueger says, "Recently, our dream home fell into our lap." She says it "wouldn't be fair" to ask for votes because she'll be moving in the spring.
Pflueger's opponent is Pamela Bauman, a Republican currently on borough council.
Pflueger got on the ballot with 46 votes in the primary, just ahead of Bauman who tallied 43 write-in votes in the Democratic primary. Bauman easily won the Republican nomination over another candidate.
