Councilmember Renee Williams has tendered her resignation from the Parker Town Council.
“I’m at a personal crossroads – I want to return home to Parker and continue to serve my beloved community, but I don’t want to leave my aging parents during this pandemic,” said Williams. “As difficult as the decision to resign was to make, I believe it is the right choice under the circumstances,” she added.
“Although Renee has been in Arizona taking care of her ailing mom, she continued to be an active member of the Town Council and was fulfilling her Council commitments,” said Mayor Mike Waid. “Renee will be missed and we wish her the best of luck.”
Williams has served on the Parker Town Council since November of 2014 and her current term ends in 2022. According to the Town Charter, the Town Council must appoint a replacement to the vacant position within 30 days of Council determining there is a vacancy created by her resignation. If a consensus on an appointment can’t be reached, a special election will need to be held within 90 days thereafter.
