Saratoga mayor leaves in fourth term
August 19, 2020
Less than two years after officially taking office for his fourth term, John Zeiger has resigned from his position as mayor of Saratoga “effective immediately”. In a post made on social media late Monday night, Zeiger cited familial reasons—the upcoming birth of his grandson—as his reason for resigning.
The post announcing his resignation comes after multiple vague posts about an upcoming decision. At the August 4 meeting of the Saratoga Town Council, Zeiger had appointed Councilmember Bob Keel as mayor pro-tem, a position previously held by the late Councilmember Steve Wilcoxson.
