City Council Member To Step Down

Goldsboro will be short one city council member.

District 3 City Council Member Mark Stevens had previously announced he would not be seeking reelection.

At Monday’s meeting, Stevens asked to make his resignation from the council official before his term expires.

Stevens says he joined the council hoping to save the arts for the City of Goldsboro.

He says his new opportunities may provide him a path to buying a new building for the Arts Council.

Stevens says he has other opportunities to go back into the film and animation industry.

His last day as a member of the Goldsboro City Council will be August 2nd.

    Mark Stevens comments about his time on the city council and resignation were very professional and he deserves to be wished the best.

  2. Delta says:

    Way to go Foster and Williams. SMH! Can’t say I blame him. On another news source, he admitted that he got tired of the BS on the city council and felt like nothing was getting done. While I disagree with his vote against Williams’ censure, Mark Stevens seemed like a good man. He’ll be missed.

    He also admitted the real reason that former city manager Scott Stevens left: Scott didn’t want to deal with Williams anymore over the whole incident with Shycole-Simpson Carter, so he left to become county administrator for James City County, VA. He didn’t “retire” at all.

    Foster and Williams have GOT to go.
