Hi. State of PA. My local codes do not stipulate anything, but I'm curious about the legality of an illegitimate mayor (was elected without residing in the borough, as required) who is using his position as mayor to benefit his businesses.
For example, this mayor canceled our community Halloweed parade and trick or treat due to covid, while holding a ribbon cutting ceremony, inside, with food, for more than 50 people, to open a new business that the mayor owns.
This mayor also used his veto ability to veto zoning changes (that council approved), in order to prevent development nearby his own business.
Is there any recourse here? Mayoral requirements are clear- must be a resident and at least 18. The mayor is not a resident. Period.
