When David Waddell chose to resign from the North Carolina Indian Trail Town Council, he chose to do it in warrior fashion. He wrote the letter in Klingon.
Waddell told The Charlotte Observer “Folks don’t know what to think of me half the time, so I might as well have one last laugh.”
Apparently, Mayor Michael Alvarez was not impressed and called the letter unprofessional:
“It’s an embarrassment for Indian Trail, and it’s an embarrassment for North Carolina,” he said.
Waddell says that, while his four year term expires in December 2015, he is resigning at the end of the month due to frustration with the way the council handles certain procedures.
But you don’t have to worry that our Klingon friend is losing face by stepping down. He hasn’t given up the fight. He’s apparently using this time to mount a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party’s platform against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.
