Mount Vernon City Council president won't seek 3rd term
Mount Vernon City Council President Roberta Apuzzo announced Tuesday that she will not be running for a third term.
Apuzzo called the city's future bleak because of its current administration. She's been at odds with Mayor Richard Thomas and has even publicly asked him to step down.
"I think it is best that I remove myself from what has become a very toxic and stressful situation," Apuzzo said.
Thomas presented Apuzzo with a gift moments after her announcement. He said he supports her decision but disagrees with her description of the city's political climate.
Apuzzo's term ends in December.
