Former Savannah Mayor, Coverdell Leadership Institute Director Susan Weiner Has Died

WTOC in Savannah is reporting the death of former Savannah Mayor Susan Weiner.  She has been battling complications from arterial surgery from last week.

Weiner served one term as Savannah’s mayor, becoming the first female to serve in that position after defeating longtime Mayor John Rusakis in 1991.

She also later served as the Executive Director of the Coverdell Leadership Institute.

We send our thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.
