Fresno mayor quits group over Iraq vote
by UPI

FRESNO, Calif. - The mayor of Fresno, Calif., quit the United States Conference of Mayors after the group voted to urge Congress to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq.

The group voted 51-47 Monday in Los Angeles to encourage the U.S. House of Representatives to support troop withdrawal, The Fresno Bee reported.

Fresno Mayor Alan Autry resigned immediately, saying he opposed the resolution because it had been proposed at the last minute.

"I have a lot of issues with the way this war has been run, but that's not the issue," Autry told the Bee. "The issue is: Do we send an arbitrary, ill-thought-out message? I believe we shouldn't."

The mayors wrapped up their semi-annual meeting Tuesday.
