The Mayor in the United States is the head of the municipal government of a city, town, borough, or county. The mayor is elected by the citizens of the municipality to a four-year term of office, and is the presiding officer of the municipal government. The mayor is responsible for the administration of the municipality, and is the direct link between the residents and the government.
