Whitefish Bay Village Board trustee Lauri Rollings has announced she will resign effective June 1 to focus on working and the imminent birth of her first child in mid-June.
"I have been doing a lot of soul searching over the last few weeks and I just don't feel confident that I will be able to balance the demands of my full-time job, new parenthood and my responsibilities to the village," Rollings wrote in an email to Village President Julie Siegel, Village Manager Patrick DeGrave, and assistant manager Kayla Chadwick. "The village deserves someone who will be able to devote his or her full attention to village business."
Rollings was elected in 2011 to a three-year term ending in 2014, and has also served on the Community Development Authority and an ad hoc subcommittee which deals with Private Property Infiltration and Inflow, the amount of rainwater getting into the village's sanitary sewer system.
The Village Board tonight will begin to choose whether to appoint someone or hold a special election to fill Rollings' seat for the remainder of her term, or simply allow the seat to remain vacant until the next regular election in April 2014.
