Council Candidate Announces Resignation from Election

Sheridan City Council Candidate David Lee has announced that he is dropping out of this year’s election cycle due to health concerns. Lee explained that after being hospitalized for the last week, he needs to take the time necessary to focus on getting healthy. He continued that would it not have been for this complication, he would certainly still be running as he has “developed even stronger views on the council and the sad decisions our mayor is making.”

Lee said that after watching the Sheridan City Council meetings online, he is “ashamed of the discord and disrespect shown toward the elected officials and the current attitude of our mayor,” further stating that to him it is a sign of “greed and power”. He continued that Mayor Miller knew the City Administrator would be in place when he ran for the position and that he chose to run in spite of that. See below to read Lee’s full comments on his resignation from the 2018 election.

I am writing you first to announce my resignation in this years election. While I definitely would still be like to be in the running and have developed even stronger views on the council and the sad decisions our mayor is making, I for physical reasons have to drop out of the race. I, at this time have to, after being hospitalized for the last week, have to focus on my health. It would most difficult at this time to care for a community when I am physically struggling to take care of myself. I have continued to watch council meetings from the net and I, personally am ashamed of the discord and disrespect shown toward the elected officials and the current attitude of our mayor. I personally see this as a sign of greed and power. Upon running for the position of our community position as mayor, the city administrator position was already in place. Mayor Miller chose to run in spite of that. It definitely makes me question is real agenda and why he feels he needs more power than he does. I personally would rather do away with his position. I have seen no paperwork proving that his position saves our community any money. There is no requirements educationally like there is for the city administrator and Collins has proven to have been worth the money we pay him, the mayor on the other hand, has not produced such evidence. I would encourage the current and future city council to keep in state the status of mayor as it is now. I think we are setting ourselves up to fail if we do not. I appreciate all of those who were prepared to vote for me and will keep my options for running the future open. I pray that the people of Sheridan are selective in their voting process this year.

Thank you David Lee
