Kittitas Mayor Resigning

Posted: Updated:

The mayor of Kittitas has announced he is resigning. 

Steve Arington told KNDO on Wednesday why he made this decision.

"The stress was such that I didn't want to end up having a heart attack and thus preventing me from doing as well as I could do in that position," he said.

The Kittitas City Council will appoint a new mayor to replace Arington.
