Lafayette Councilmember Cameron Burks Submits Letter of Resignation

by ECT

At the City of Lafayette City Council meeting on June 28, 2021, Councilmember Cameron Burks announced that he will resign his position on the Council effective June 29, 2021 due to family reasons.

In his letter of resignation submitted that evening, Burks said:

“In recent days, I have come to the difficult decision to step down from my elected position as a member of the Lafayette City Council effective June 29, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. I have always believed in putting my family first above all else, and this time is no exception.

Lafayette is a special place.  As I walked around the Reservoir this weekend I took stock of how fortunate we all are to live here.  There is no place like our town and I urge everyone to get involved and volunteer.  It is our organic, community-based leadership that has brought us to where we are.  It’s vital for it to continue.

I believe this Lafayette City Council is the best in the business, and will govern the city with great passion and dedication to the community. Thank you so much to an incredible City Staff who works tremendously hard for our community.

It has been an honor to serve on the City Council and previously, the Crime Prevention Commission, and I thank each and every one of you for placing your trust and faith in me while in office. I will always remain a deeply caring resident and look forward to seeing you around this awesome town.”

Mayor Susan Candell, Vice Mayor Teresa Gerringer and Councilmembers, Carl Anduri and Gina Dawson each expressed their appreciation for Burks, who has served on the Lafayette City Council for the past four and a half years. Mayor Susan Candell said, “We are going to miss you, and your leadership, and everything you have brought to our City.”

The City Council will discuss next steps to fill the seat at an upcoming City Council meeting.
