Incoming small town Mexico mayor kidnapped, killed

Nice, you cant even be a mayor elect in Mexico.

This is like the 6th or 7th Mayor killed in the past couple months.

(Reuters) - A mayor-elect from the Mexican state of Veracruz was kidnapped and killed along with two companions on Monday, local media reported.

The reports did not link the killings to the violence sweeping Mexico as the government fights powerful drug cartels. Several mayors and other elected officials have been targeted by drug gangs in recent months.

Gregorio Barradas Miravete, the mayor-elect from the municipality of Juan Rodriguez Clara, was a member of President Felipe Calderon's National Action Party.
