He submitted his resignation this week.
Mayor, Council and Town of Grantsville,
I regret to inform you that I will be leaving town council soon. The December 3, 2012 meeting will be the last meeting I will attend as councilman.
I am getting married and moving to another town at the end of December. If it weren't for moving, I would be on council for as long as you would have me.
I'm going to miss living in Grantsville and being on town council. Being a council member and being active in this community has been deeply fulfilling and rewarding.
When I was first elected I couldn't believe the overwhelming support I received and I want to thank everyone who put their confidence in me.
I know that the remaining council and mayor will do everything in their power to make Grantsville a better place.
As a final statement, I would like to encourage people in the area, particularly young people, to get involved in your community.
There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of fun to be had. Consider joining or creating a positive organization that will help bolster your community.
You live in a very special and unique piece of the planet, do your part to preserve and appreciate it. It's your responsibility.
Andrew William Smith
