MANDEVILLE, Louisiana: This past Friday Mandeville Mayor Eddie Price announced that he is resigning from office. "Over the past year, the distractions have become a great burden to this city. It is important to me that the City of Mandeville move forward in a positive direction and have the representation it well deserves. So it is with great sadness that today I've made the decision to step down as mayor effective immediately," said Price.[1] Price's resignation comes months after residents abandoned their efforts for a recall election and an August 2009 indictment by a St. Tammany Parish grand jury on charges that he committed perjury in his testimony in a 2008 criminal trial.[2]

A special election will be scheduled to choose a successor but in the mean time the city council is expected to nominate a temporary replacement.[1]
