PACIFIC, Wash. -- The political drama in the city of Pacific has taken another turn. KING 5 has learned Mayor Cy Sun has skipped town, possibly to Oregon.

Mayor Sun's vanishing act is the latest development in this story which includes allegations Sun stuffed political flyers in mailboxes as he and the city council continue sparring.

Pacific is on the verge of being swallowed up by the city of Auburn in an effort to provide basic services.

Sun was a no show at a packed meeting about the annexation earlier this week. He wrote a letter saying his wife was on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

That is one reason some believe he has left the area.

Meanwhile, the city is in chaos and many believe Sun's resignation is the only thing which will satisfy the city's insurer and save the city of Pacific.
