Zone 2 Councilman Justin Burnett resigns

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Zone 2 Councilman Justin Burnett distributed a letter today to City Council tendering his resignation, effective Jan. 15. Burnett was elected in April 2015. Essentially citing reasons of health and time commitment, he indicated that the hours required by the Council, his job and his schooling led to negative consequences regarding his health. “I was saddened to hear of Mr. Burnett’s resignation. However, one's health must be paramount and you cannot take care of the community if you don’t take care of yourself,” said Mayor Bob Stephens. “Obviously, we wish Justin the best as he moves forward with other endeavors." The City has a process by which City Council members are replaced and the Department of Public Information will send out a news release outlining that process and timeline on Monday. # # # For more information, or to reach Councilman Burnett, contact Cora Scott at 417-380-3352 or cscott@springfieldmo.gov.
