Mayor of Ithaca is stepping down


Svante Myrick announced last night (January 5) that he is resigning from his position as the Mayor of Ithaca. He accepted a new job as the Executive Director for the People of the American Way. Acting Mayor Laura Lewis will take his place. 

During the Wednesday night Common Council meeting, Myrick said, “I love the city. I’ve loved serving the city. I feel like my service made a difference. Being the 44th Mayor of the city of Ithaca has been the honor of my lifetime.”

He is the longest serving Mayor in Ithaca’s history and the youngest Mayor ever elected in New York state at the age of 24.
