Phoenix Councilman Resigns, Another to Follow Suit
City Councilman Daniel Valenzuela resigned yesterday in order to comply with state law to resign by August 8 to pursue the mayor’s office.
In order to make a smoother transition for City Council, Councilwoman Kate Gallego will be resigning after the council appoints someone to fill the Council District 5 seat, and then the council will repeat the process for the Council District 8 seat after her resignation becomes official.
A special election has been scheduled for March 12, 2019, for the Council District 5 seat.
