SHERWOOD, Ore. — An Oregon mayor has resigned rather than face a recall election.

Sherwood Mayor Krisanna Clark-Endicott said she is leaving the Portland suburb to be with her new husband — Redmond Mayor George Endicott. The two were married in July.

Supporters of the recall are upset about Clark-Endicott’s handling of a contract to manage the city-owned recreation center that houses the YMCA.

Two city councilors, Sally Robinson and Jennifer Harris, will face a recall election on Oct. 17.
