Pueblo Council member resigns

Pueblo City Council Member Judy Weaver has submitted her resignation, effective immediately. 

Weaver has been on the Council since 2006.  She represents District 1.

City Manager Jerry Pacheco states, "Judy is a very intelligent, hard working individual who has given selflessly of herself while serving on the Council. Judy's desire to have all the data in order to thoughtfully consider each vote has been an asset to this organization. In my eight years with the City, four of which as city manager, she has been very supportive of me and my work, and it has truly been a pleasure to work with her. Judy needs to do what's best for her, and we need to thank her for serving this community in such an exemplary fashion. She will be greatly missed."

Council President Chris Kaufman states, "Judy's intellect and preparation are unmatched, and we are going to miss her immensely. Among other things, she understood the City's budget better than most, and she will be difficult to replace. The Council wishes her well. She will be sorely missed."

According to the City Charter, the vacant position will be filled by Council appointment of an eligible person.
