Which sentence is correct?
Mayor Nancy Burns opened a new rehabilitation center.
Mayoress Nancy Burns opened a new rehabilitation center.
It is possible to use both, in recent years it has become common (in the uk at least) to call a woman elected to the position of Mayor, "Mayoress". Not to be confused with "Lady Mayoress" which is the title given to the wife of the Lord Mayor of certain large cities in the UK.
