Charlotte City Council To Select New Mayor

CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Charlotte City Council will choose a new mayor to replace Patrick Cannon, who resigned last month in a public corruption scandal.


The council will vote Monday evening on a new mayor. They can choose someone who's already on council or an outsider, as long as the person is a Democrat, to replace Cannon.


The 47-year-old Democrat was arrested March 26 and resigned hours later, less than six months after taking office. Federal prosecutors say Cannon accepted more than $48,000 in bribes from FBI agents posing as businessmen who wanted to work with North Carolina's largest city.


Council members had been scheduled to select a new mayor last week but delayed the vote so they could talk with possible candidates and constituents.
