• Frustrated residents, former leaders calling for impeachment of newly-elected mayor


    MONESSEN, Pa. - Some people in Monessen are calling for the impeachment of their newly-elected mayor.

    Matt Shorraw hasn't been to a meeting in a month, putting the city behind on its bills.

    Shorraw didn't show up on Thursday night either. He's claiming council members tried to force him to resign and could force him into filling a vacant council seat.


    "We have an individual that's a big baby," said Lou Mavrakis, the former mayor. "He doesn't get his way, he doesn't have council on his side, so he doesn't attend. He was elected to show up here and run this city."

    Mavrakis lost his re-election bid to Shorraw while facing a sexual harassment lawsuit.

    The lawsuit, filed by a city employee, was reportedly resolved last month.
