I am currently borrowing New Leaf from my step sister and I have now bought a copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf for myself.. I am NOT the mayor on her game card, when I transfer my save data from her town to my new town, would i automatically become mayor? Or will I need to start a whole new game in order to become mayor?

A save transfer can only be done by a player who is not the mayor of the town. When you arrive in the new town, you will automatically become the mayor of that town.
