Welcome to Using English.
Yes, that's one use of "would" -- future in the past.
He moved to the town where he would (someday) be mayor.
However, you need to use capital letters.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
