Burlington City Councilor Ed Adrian (D-Ward 1) is resigning effective September 30. He informed fellow councilors in an email this morning.
Did he do it to spend more time with his family? Adrian tells Seven Days that he's stepping down for a "combination of reasons."
"There's no great revelation there," he says. "I just think the Senate race actually brought some clarity to me and the path I need to choose right now, and it's not one of volunteer political service. It's just the fact that [council service] is a great consumer of time that puts pressure on everything.
"I know that sounds nebulous," he added.
