Yucca Valley – Mayor pro tem Isaac Hagerman has submitted his resignation from Town Council effective July 20, 2012. In his letter, Councilmember Hagerman expressed his appreciation to the residents of the community. “To the residents of the Town, I say thank you for allowing me the honor to represent you these past two years,” Hagerman wrote. “I arrive at this decision with mixed emotions, but at this time in my life I need to focus my time and energy on my sons and my job,” wrote Hagerman.
“We thank Councilmember Hagerman for his service. Each of us understands the commitment of time that this job entails. For Isaac to focus on his sons and work is understandable,” said Mayor Dawn Rowe. “The Town, as always, will continue to provide leadership in addressing our community’s important issues and priorities without distraction.”

“The Town has received Mr. Hagerman’s resignation and will move forward to address the vacancy consistent with state law,” said Yucca Valley Town Manager Mark Nuaimi. Under State law, the Town Council has 60 days to call a Special Election. That Special Election must occur no sooner than 114 days after being called by the Council. “Although there is an election in November, the timeline mandated by State law will push a Special Election to fill this vacancy to March 2013 at the earliest,” said Nuaimi.
Councilmember Hagerman concluded his resignation letter by thanking his colleagues on the Council. “To my colleagues on the Council, thank you for your leadership, mentoring, and commitment to this community. I know that I leave this leadership role in very capable hands. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers,” concluded Hagerman.
