Mayer Calling it Quits

Albuquerque City Councilor Sally Mayer who was running for a third term in District 7 has decided to call it quits.

770KKOB learned Monday night, just before the city council meeting, that she has removed her name from this Fall's ballot. Around 4pm, Mayer notified City Clerk Randy Autio that she is withdrawing from the race.

Mayer told me she's moving to Chicago in January to help her daughter's family.

Financial advisor Mike Cook, who had served on the police oversight commission will become the districts councilor in October.

Mayer said that she's proud of the work she did on the animal control measure which is better known as the Heart ordinance.
