After 20 years of service, Peoria Councilman Carlo Leone announced his resignation effective April 16, due to ongoing health issues.
Mayor Cathy Carlat made the announcement at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. Mr. Leone was not in attendance.
“It has been the privilege of my life to serve the residents of Peoria, I am honored that residents have chosen me time and again to be their representative,” Ms. Carlat read. “It is out of the greatest respect for my constituents and my unwavering support for the city that I have chosen to step aside. This job is too important to give anything less than 100 percent and unfortunately, I am no longer able to give that at this time.”
