Paris City Council member, Renae Stone of District 1 withdrew from the May General Election on Friday afternoon and tendered her resignation on the City Council due to personal reasons.
“After careful consideration and a lot of praying, I have decided to withdraw from the election and resign my seat as City Council Member District 1 effective immediately,” said Stone. “This was a difficult design but I needed to do this for personal reasons.”
She continued, “I have enjoyed working with each of you, the city staff and most of all I have enjoyed representing the citizens. As I leave this role, I take away with me the wonderful long lasting relationships. I hope the best for our City as you all move forward.”
New candidate Shatara “Sha” Moore filed for Stone’s City Council District 1 seat and is running unopposed.
