Corry City Councilman Brad Russell, 62, has resigned from his position after serving two months of his recently elected four-year term.

During the city of Corry's reorganizational meeting this morning, Councilman Charlie Campbell read a letter from Russell — dated Dec. 28 — announcing his resignation, effective today. 

The letter did not state why Russell is leaving Council and calls made to his cellphone from The Corry Journal this morning were not returned as of press time.

Russell did not attend today's meeting.

Russell was appointed to Council in June to fill the seat of Jason Monn, who vacated his Council post because he was appointed, at that time, as mayor to replace former Mayor Pat Migliaccio, who resigned.

Russell, a Republican, ran for a four-year seat and won in the November general election.

City Council is looking to fill the vacant seat and is taking applications from city residents. 

The city must also fill the position of mayor after former Mayor Jason Monn announced his resignation on Dec. 22, effective today.

Monn said when he took over the city leader position he was only going to stay on for one year. There are still two years left in the term.

Anyone interested in applying for the Council or mayor position is asked to submit a resume and list of qualifications by Jan. 20 at 4:30 p.m. to the city building, 100 S. Center St.
