First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me over these last several months. To many of you, it is no surprise that I have a past, a past that I'm not necessarily proud of at all. But we cannot allow ourselves to be defined by what we have done. I had hoped and still hope to use that example in my life.
With that being said, I have resigned my position as a member of our Joplin City Council. In all the research I had done prior to running. I missed a MO Statute that prevents me from holding office.
I want it to be known, I never intended on doing any harm to our city or our city council. I love this city and our governing of this city. To those that were counting on me. I am so very sorry I let you down!
