Letter: Ready to Return to City Council

To the Editor:

As many of you know, I resigned from the City Council in July of this year for personal reasons. Several people have asked me if my resignation was part of a cover-up or if there was something criminal that caused it. I want the voters to know that at the time I resigned I was undergoing a lot of stress. In order to avoid making any decisions that may have affected the city or its citizens, I chose to resign.

These issues are now resolved and I am running again for one of the at-large seats. I want the citizens of Claremont to know that I will be listening to the voters and will be voting, with their input, for what may best move Claremont forward.
