Alice Nolan, the Seat #2 Apopka City Commissioner, has resigned from the City Council in a letter sent to the City of Apopka this afternoon.
In a brief statement, Nolan wrote:
It is with great sadness that I write this Resignation Letter. Due to circumstances beyond my control I am unable to continue my obligations as City Commissioner of Apopka effective end of day of August 4, 2020. It has been an honor and a learning experience working with everyone at the city. I ask kindly that you will continue the work we as a commission have started on affordable housing, all inclusive playgrounds and to consider districting and term limits.
