Pennsburg Mayor to Resign
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer
2020-11-24

            Vicki Lightcap indicated her desire to resign as the mayor of Pennsburg earlier this week. It was listed as the No. 1 item of unfinished business of the agenda for the Nov. 24 council meeting.

            She submitted a one-line, unsigned letter to municipal officials announcing her decision as of Monday, Nov. 23. Lightcap, who has served as mayor since 2014, wrote that she is resigning to pursue a personal opportunity. She turned in a signed letter and the municipal keys to borough officials Tuesday, according to council President Diane Stevens.

            "I had some personal opportunities come my way," Lightcap said Tuesday afternoon. "It would be a conflict to do those things and remain as mayor."

            Lightcap served two terms as major. She became the first woman to fill the role in the borough in 2007, when was appointed to complete the term of Charlie Shagg, who resigned. In January of 2013, she was appointed to council and a seat on the Upper Perk Police Commission. Later that year, we won a second stint as mayor.

            "I enjoyed being out there and working with the community," said Lightcap, who explained that she is most proud of creating the junior council member position. "I liked helping council solve issues. I got to mentor a lot of youth in the community."
