Burch named as Cape mayor

By Staff | Nov 17, 2008

Cape Coral city council members voted Jim Burch to be the new mayor, replacing outgoing Mayor Eric Feichthaler.

Burch edged out fellow Councilmember Bill Deile in a 4-3 runoff vote.

Burch’s appointment creates an opening in his District 1 seat. The council must now fill that spot with someone from that district.
