City Clerk, 7th District Alderwoman to resign

July 28, 2011

City Clerk Kris Schmidt's impending resignation has prompted the resignation of 7th District Alderwoman Lisa Mellone; who intends to seek appointment to the city clerk position.

Mellone, a two-term alderwoman, announced her resignation in an e-mail to her constituents on Wednesday. 

"As a candidate for office in two elections, I've come to appreciate and respect the election process and therefore, have a strong desire to ensure continued fair, accurate and reliable elections while hopefully serving as city clerk," Mellone said. 

Mellone — who serves on the city's Finance Committee and Board of Public Works — said in the e-mail that it was appropriate to tender her resignation before applying to be appointed city clerk. 

Mayor Steven Ponto will interview candidates and appoint an interim representative for the 7th District until an election can be held.
