Bill Ward, who was elected to the Altadena Town Council in June, announced his resignation from the council, representing Census Tract 4612, today.
Ward, a 12-year resident of Altadena, cited his decision to move out of state as the reason for his resignation.
Ward wrote in a statement:
"I write to you now to resign my position as Altadena Town Councilman representing Census Tract 4612, effective today. I am moving to another state with my family and selling my home in Altadena, and therefore will no longer be a resident. It was an honor to be elected by my neighbors and a privilege to serve for the short time that I did."
