The East Berlin Borough Council divided along its usual lines to name former council member Gregery Green mayor and reject the only other applicant, Stephanie Haley, who said she is considering a write-in campaign for a full term as mayor.

By a 4-3 vote Wednesday, the council chose Green, who did not attend the meeting, to serve as mayor until January, when the term of Keith Hoffman ends. Hoffman resigned as mayor effective May 1 after a judge ruled there was no evidence he lived in the borough. A prior motion to name Haley, who grew up in East Berlin and has served on its Zoning Board of Appeals, failed by a 3-4 vote.
