Ward 2 Councilman Eric Bradford abruptly resigned from his position on the Elgin City Council Monday. In an email sent to Elgin Mayor JJ Francais, Bradford wrote:


“Unfortunately, some personal problems have come up in my life and I believe it my best decision to resign from my position as Councilman of Ward 2 for the City of Elgin. This needs to be effective immediately.”


No additional information was provided regarding the nature or details of the “personal problems” Bradford cited in his resignation.


Efforts to reach Bradford by phone Tuesday were not immediately successful.
