Corfu mayor newly seated, nearly ousted

The mayor of a Genesee County community could be facing an ouster. Residents in Corfu are becoming increasingly aggravated with Mayor Ralph Peterson, who has only been in office for over a week. The ire with Peterson has grown over his domineering approach and what village trustees call a reckless approach to handling personnel. A recent vote fell one supporter shy of forcing Peterson to resign.

A petition is being circulated that will be sent to Governor Cuomo in an effort to unseat the mayor.
