Subject: Resignation, effective immediately
June and Tim,
Following up on my email to you last week regarding my job interview in Washington, DC, I have been offered and accepted the position. Consider this email notice of my formal resignation, effective immediately.
This has been an atrocious, incredibly depressing, and mind-numbingly inane experience I would not wish on anyone. I wish the City the best of luck in finding some schmuck eager to transcribe every last misogynistic joke, self-indulgent anecdote, and pathetic pandering attempt by Council, and every tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, racist aside, and NIMBY asshattery from the lovely Council meeting frequent flyers, without which, surely our democracy could not flourish. June, also best of luck with your imminent unfunded pensions scandal, that is going to be a rough one.
