I am resigning as mayor of Anytown, effective in two weeks' time. I am throwing my hat in the ring for the County Board of Supervisors race.
In recognition of his jurisdiction's resign-to-run laws, and because constituents deserve an officeholder who can give the city's needs their full attention, I have no option but to step down.
However, I will not begin my campaign until the budget is complete, on June 15. I feel duty-bound to see this commitment through.
