New NC Mayor Tonight, But Who Becomes Vice-Mayor?

Nevada City will have a new mayor before the end of the night. Duane Strawser ends his one year-term, and Vice Mayor Sally Harris will take over the top spot in city government.

Normally, the council person with the longest tenure who hasn’t been mayor would become Mayor-Pro Tem, or Vice-Mayor, and if there are two candidates of equal tenure, the tiebreaker is who got the most votes in the most recent election. City Manager David Brennan says something unforseen has happened this time…
