SLO councilman resigns on Facebook
January 23, 2013
In what has become the popular way to communicate with one’s constituents, San Luis Obispo City Councilman Andrew Carter announced plans to resign his council seat on his Facebook page shortly before 1 p.m. today.
“I have good new and bad news,” Carter said. “The good news is I have found full-time employment. The bad news is that I will be resigning my SLO City Council seat as a result.
“Today the city of Guadalupe is announcing that I have been selected as their new city administrator subject to my passing a background check, the negotiation of an employment contract and that contract being approved in open session by their council.
“That approval is anticipated to take place on Feb. 12, my birthday. I would begin work there on Feb. 20.
“Assuming approval does take place, I will be resigning my SLO council seat on Feb 20. My last council meeting here would be Feb. 19.
“I’m sad to be leaving public service in SLO. I’m excited to be starting public service in Guadalupe.
“Wish me luck!”
