FROM THE DESK OF ARTEMIS BLACKTHORNE
February 12th, 2024
Liam McGrath, Legislative Assistant to Artemis Blackthorne | 831 830 5121
Stepping Down From Secretary
Rockford Hills (City Hall) — Effective immediately, I have made the decision to relinquish the role of Secretary of the Legislature. This comes after a good deal of thought and consideration, after examining the beginnings of this term. It has become clear to me that I am not a good fit to serve as Secretary of the Legislature for the 9th Congress – To me, the Secretary should be capable of attending most if not all Legislative Meetings, not only to serve as a good example, but also to ensure that the meeting notes are taken and taken by the Secretary themselves, and not passed along to them by another who was able to attend.
I have no input on which of my colleagues should take my place as Secretary, but I am sure whoever takes the role shall do an incredible job.
Have an amazing day,
Artemis Blackthorne, State Representative
