Thursday: Deferiet Board Picks Zando As Mayor


The Jefferson County Village of Deferiet has a new mayor.

Meeting Wednesday night, village trustees unanimously selected trustee Janet Zando to replace outgoing mayor Robert Foster.

Trustees were forced to pick a mayor after John Pais, the write-in candidate who beat Foster in November's election, declined to take the job.

After the decision Wednesday night, Foster declared "I'm all done, thank god."

"I hope they continue to progress. I hope they continue with what needs to be done."

Pais declined the job because, he said, he has a couple of conflicts and a potential business venture that would preclude him from being mayor.

Trustees are expected to pick a replacement for Zando at the village board's next meeting.
