Due to the illness of Corfu Mayor Ralph Peterson, the village board of trustees there has decided to delay their efforts to throw him out of office.
Peterson is reportedly hospitalized with an undisclosed ailment.
He told trustees his condition is related to stress.
The trustees had sent a letter to Peterson demanding that he resign. The letter had a deadline of 5pm last Friday.
There was no response from Peterson.
If Peterson didn’t go voluntarily, the trustees vowed to petition the New York State Supreme Court to remove him from office.
The relationship between Peterson and the trustees went sour after Peterson openly supported former Village Justice Robert Alexander and his daughter over $10,000 of missing money from the village court.
