The following is an e-mail she sent out Friday:
I want to thank you for all your support of our team and me. With a heavy heart, I must share with you the news that my family and I will be re-locating this summer to Texas. Andrew, my husband, is being transferred to Houston, which is also home to my parents.
Our family is devastated to be leaving all of our wonderful friends after living in Westchester County for over 15 years, but we wanted to share this news with you as soon as possible.
Since we will be moving at the end of June, a new person will be appointed to the Rye City Council with timing TBD. Since being elected to the Rye City Council, I have worked hard to represent the people of Rye and the Sound Shore area with integrity and collaboration, while trying to bring affordability to the area. With the recent recession having impacted many across the area, I have fought to focus on priorities in order to maintain vital services and to protect taxpayers from rapidly rising taxes. More remains to be done, but we have made some important progress.
Rye City, and all of you, have been truly amazing and supportive. I am grateful and honored to have had the opportunity to serve you in the community and in public service. You will continue to be in my thoughts and I wish the best for all of you.
While I hope to see you in person before the summer, please keep in touch through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook, or my marketing blog: Revolutionary Marketing Ideas. Always keep me posted on how I can help you and if you make it down to Houston for some bbq and rodeo.
