Nelliston mayor resigns: trustee

NELLISTON-Village Mayor Donald Yerdon has stepped down, with Trustee Russel Vance stepping in to take over the position.

According to Vance, Yerdon stepped down due to health concerns Monday, leading Vance to take over the position.

According to Vance, he will hold the seat at least until the current term ends. Vance said he may run for the office during the 2015 election.

“It’s a possibility. I want to see how it works out,” Vance said.

Yerdon was unavailable for comment.

The board appointed Alan Wainwright as trustee to fill Vance’s term.
