Special to SEGAZINE
Blackshear City Councilman Jeffrey Parr has announced he will step down due to a scheduling hardship with his job.
The District 5 councilman, who works as a trainer and gym operator at Anytime Fitness, submitted a letter to the city this week. His resignation is effective April 1.
“I have enjoyed the opportunity to serve our community and the citizens of my district, but due to my current job and scheduling conflict, I feel I am unable to attend the Council meetings and fulfill my duties in a manner as to which I am able to represent my district and this community to the best of my ability,” Parr said in the letter.
