Councilmember Glover, as you may know, has been dealing with some health challenges over the last several months. After much thought and advice, he has made the difficult determination that it is in his best interest to resign from the seat.

Steve has been a personal friend of mine for many years. He has served our city in numerous ways, including as an elected representative on the School Board and as both a District and At-large member of this body, I may not have always agreed with Steve on some issues, but I know that he deeply loves this city and that he brought that determination to the Council floor. His passionate efforts on behalf of the city demonstrates that he cares.

I wish him well and better health. I will miss him on the Council."

In his resignation letter, Glover said the amount of stress he is under is majorly impacting his health. "This is the area of my life, among others, that I need to be extremely focused upon at this time," he said.
