The former mayor of Ontario, Oregon says he's willing to pitch in to help his city which has now been without a mayor for more than six months.
This morning's Ontario Argus Observer reports that former mayor LeRoy Cammack has submitted a formal request to be appointed until the end of the current term.
"I have no interest in being Mayor beyond the end of 2014," wrote Cammack in a July 22 leter to the Ontario council. "I have nearly eight years experience serving as Mayor ... I have extensive experience in working in leadership positions ... I am honest."
The council has been previously deadlocked—usually ending in 3-3 ties—in choosing a new mayor candidate and, in fact, has been deadlocked to even meet with potential candidates.
Traditionally, the mayor of Ontario breaks a deadlock tie.
