Mayor of VA’s largest city, Will Sessoms, stepping down as Mayor
A ‘huge political announcement’ coming at 11 am was billed on WAVY TV 10 this morning, and sources have now confirmed that Virginia Beach Mayor, Will Sessoms, is resigning from his post as Virginia Beach mayor.
Sessoms, who succeeded the late former mayor Meyera Oberndorf in 2009, has served 2 terms and oversaw tremendous economic growth in the city after the worst recession since the 1930s. However he has not been without controversy, as he was convicted of conflict of interest for his role in several high profile votes where his former employer Towne Bank benefited in land development contracts. Sessoms continued to serve as President on the Towne Bank Board of Directors during his first term as mayor.
