The letter reads, in part:
I will no longer be part of an organization that does not operate as a legitimate government and that is not open, transparent, and accountable to the community. Effective December 15, 2009, at 12:00 noon, I resign my position as Council Member of Census Tract 4602.
Rest assured that I will remain more active than ever in keeping our Altadena community informed, and I will continue full throttle in encouraging and spotlighting the wonderful progress being made in our local public schools.
I pray that the Altadena Town Council learns from this experience, and in turn legitimizes itself and becomes truly representative government for the community.
More to come.
