Eau Claire City Council President Kerry Kincaid resigned her position Tuesday morning.

Kincaid, who has led the council for nine years, issued a statement after she submitted her resignation to City Manager Dale Peters.

“On this day, and effective immediately, I find it necessary to resign my position as City Council President as it has become impossible to govern in a manner befitting a city that works, and to which the public has become accustomed,” she wrote.

Kincaid won re-election in April 2017 and is stepping down in the middle of a three-year term.

Council vice president Andrew Werthmann is expected to preside over City Council meetings, including today’s 4 p.m. legislative session. There will be an appointment process to choose a new president until a special election next spring. Whoever wins that election in April will serve for a year, until the president seat is on the 2020 ballot for a full three-year term.
