Today I submitted my resignation as Alder for District 13 to Mayor Soglin.
In the last two months I have had pressing family matters arise that require extended periods away from Madison. I simply don’t have the time to adequately represent my district.
Many thanks to my neighbors who gave me this opportunity to help make decisions about the future of our city. I’ve learned much about how the city works and explored new ideas for city management. I’ve met hundreds of neighbors. I’ve worked hours and hours with Madison’s exceptionally capable and committed staff.
This has been one of the best experiences of my life. I regret that I’m no longer able to serve.
Mayor Soglin will appoint a new alder to serve the remainder of my term. Meantime, you can contact the Mayor’s office at 266-4611 or the Council office at 266-4071.
