Halfway into his first year in office, Mark Miller resigned his Breezy Point City Council seat Wednesday, June 23.

City Administrator Patrick Wussow confirmed Miller submitted his resignation letter at 2 p.m. June 23. The letter, dated June 23 and addressed to the city of Breezy Point and to the attention of Wussow, reads: "I, Mark Miller, Effective Immediately Resign my position as City Council Member for the City of Breezy Point."

He provides no reason for the resignation in the letter. A man answering a phone call to Miller's number asked who was calling and hung up immediately after hearing it was a reporter for the Echo Journal.

Miller was elected to a four-year city council seat in the November 2020 election.

Wussow said the council will take up the resignation and how to fill the seat at its next regular meeting, which is Tuesday, July 6.
