NEW COUNCIL MEMBER STEPS DOWN

NEW COUNCIL MEMBER STEPS DOWN

A recently-elected member of Eau Claire’s city council is stepping down. At-large Alderman Laura Benjamin resigned yesterday.

She said she needs more time to ‘re-prioritize after changes in her life.’ Back in April, Benjamin became the first trans woman to be elected to the Eau Claire’s city council.

The council will decide in the next two weeks whether to appoint someone or hold an election to fill her seat.
