The mayor of Brentwood, Md., has been evicted from her rented home in the small Prince George's County municipality.

According to eviction documents, Xzavier Montgomery-Wright had fallen behind in rent for the 37th Place house. She was evicted Wednesday.

Montgomery-Wright's landlord, Earl Lowe, says the mayor owes him about $7,400 in rent and that he has tried to work with her.

In March, Montgomery-Wright was censured by Brentwood's town council for the unauthorized use of a town debit card to pay personal expenses.

Montgomery-Wright is running for a second term, but cannot serve as mayor if she is not a resident of Brentwood. The election is May 2. ... from-home/
