For the past six months, Wyatt said in a social media post she was less enthused about council decisions, such as allowing people to bring concealed weapons to council meetings.
Wyatt said she was disappointed when council did not create a Human Relations Commission earlier this year she and Councilwoman Wendy Monroe and a group of residents worked on for several months.
“I felt powerless to make a meaningful difference to those who were asking me to something,” Wyatt said in the post.
Wyatt said the first two years of her term were “meaningful” and that council worked for the betterment of the city.
“With the current membership, I do not feel that is the case and I no longer want my name to be associated with the council,” Wyatt’s resignation letter said.
