California: Montebello Mayor steps down to take temporary California Senate seat
Mayor Vanessa Delgado, who is facing a recall along with Councilman Jack Hadjinian, over votes to allow marijuana businesses to open and a $4.2 million city deficit, has agreed to step down to take a State Senate seat. Delgado won the special election for a State Senate seat, though finished out of the money in third place for the general election. There was discussion of her not taking the Senate seat for the short time period in order to keep the mayor's job.
