    The mayor of Brentwood, Md., in Prince George's County said she is reimbursing the town for some unauthorized purchases she made with a city debit card.

    Xzavier Montgomery-Wright is accused of withdrawing more than $7,500 from the city account for personal expenses.

    She told the City Council on Monday that she has paid all but $1,000 of the total bill.

    She also said she's found a new place to live.

    Montgomery-Wright was evicted from her rented home in Brentwood last week.  The landlord claims she owes him $7,000 in back rent.

    Some council members and residents have asked the mayor to resign.
