West resigns from County Council

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Even though elections were held last month, and new councilors were elected, the county council will have one more seat to fill, following a surprising announcement made during Tuesday night’s council meeting.

 

After public comments were heard, Chair Jim Hall announced that Councilor Jim West has rendered his resignation from the council effective immediately.

 

Hall read the letter of resignation that West submitted. In it, West stated that he had to resign because of a recently diagnosed illness. When contacted by phone, West confirmed the reason for his resignation, however, he would not elaborate on what sort of illness he’s suffering from or what sort of treatment he would receive to help fight it.

 

“I have an illness that requires immediate attention,” West said. “I have appointments with the doctors to begin planning for treatment.”

 

West has been on the council for six years and has two years left in his current term.

 

“It’s with the deepest regret that I have to resign to attend to treating the illness that I’ve been diagnosed with,” he said.
