Brentwood Mayor Repaying $7,500 Owed to City



    Obama Tries to Solidify Response to Syria

    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.
