On Wednesday, February 6, newly elected Waldron City Council member Paige Cupit submitted a letter of resignation.
In that letter, which was addressed to Mayor David Millard and members of the Waldron City Council, Cupit stated that “it is with regret that I must announce my resignation from the Waldron City Council.”
Cupit explained the reason for her resignation, citing health of a family member and a planned move outside the city limits.
Additionally, Cupit pledged to continue supporting the community and expressed her intent to further serve in other capacities.
Cupit, who was elected by voters in November, served in Ward 3. The Waldron City Council will vote on Tuesday, February 12 to accept Cupit’s resignation and declare a vacancy.
