Town of Lewiston Councilman Mike Marra is resigning. He released this statement via email:
"After 10 years as an elected official, I have decided to step down as a Town of Lewiston Councilman as of Friday, July 25th, 2014.
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the people of Lewiston for the opportunity to serve the Town and Village over the last decade. It truly has been an honor.
"During my time as a Village Trustee and Town Councilman I have had the privilege to serve with so many great people on both of those boards and want to thank all of them for their efforts on Lewiston's behalf. Further, I have got to know volunteer members on committees and boards who quietly work so hard for the community we love. They deserve a tremendous amount of gratitude for their time.
"This decision will afford me the opportunity to pursue some other interests; both professionally and personally.
"Finally, I wish the very best to my friends on the Town and Village Boards. I am confident that they, as I always tried to do, will continue to work for a better Lewiston.
"Michael J. Marra"
Marra was elected to the Town Board in 2009. Prior to that, he served as a Village of Lewiston trustee and deputy mayor.
