Lexington Council Member Jennifer Scutchfield has decided to resign her position on the governmental body to take a job with the State Board of Elections.
Scutchfield made the announcement Tuesday afternoon during the council work session.
“I do think this is a good time for me. It’s a good opportunity for me. Somebody is going to have to file to run by January 20, so this is a good time to open that up,” said Scutchfield.
Scutchfield, an attorney who represents the Fourth Council District, is in her second two year term.
