Ukiah councilwoman stepping down for new job

Ukiah City Councilwoman Mari Rodin has resigned, effective Aug. 16, to take a government job in Monterey County.

"It's a great professional opportunity," she said Friday.

She will be working for Monterey County's Local Agency Formation Commission, which is charged with overseeing land use-related issues.

Rodin said she did not want to leave Ukiah after 22 years but had been unsuccessful in seeking engaging, full-time work in Mendocino County. In addition to 11 years on the City Council, Rodin has been self employed as a grant writer.

She currently serves on Mendocino County's Local Agency Formation Commission.

The Council has yet to decide whether to appoint a replacement or wait for an election, said Councilman Benj Thomas.

Rodin's term does not expire until 2016.
