More bad press for the mayor of Gouverneur, the sleepy SLC village with the giant Lifesaver perched in its downtown public square.
Mayor Christopher Miller is struggling with a string of financial woes with back taxes and properties being foreclosed on.
I wouldn't seem he would have the traction to get reelected, but since few people want to run for these offices, anything is possible.
Look for current deputy mayor and labor poobah Ron McDougal to seek the office. As the hubby of the former Assemblywoman and a longtime political player, he would seem a logical candidates for the easy pickings the mayor's office will be in the next election.
Most recently, the deputy mayor made an appointment as provisional police chief and has filled in doing other duties.
The mayor is the chief administrative person in village government and earns about $7,000 a year.
