Per his letter (attached below), Mr. Kideckel feels his continued presence as a member of the City Council will be a distraction that could prevent our City from moving forward in a positive direction. Mr. Kideckel’s resignation is effective immediately, and City Council will have 30 days to fill the vacancy.
In his resignation letter, Mr. Kideckel wrote:
"I have proudly volunteered and served the City of Berkley for over 25 years in many different capacities. I’ve always considered the Berkley community as my family. On January 1, 2018, I was involved in an automobile accident and received a misdemeanor ticket.
"My sincere and heartfelt apology is extended to the people in the other vehicle and anyone else who I affected. Due to the pending Court proceedings, I am unable to comment any further on the facts at this time.
"I have always done what is best for the City of Berkley. I feel that my continued presence as a member of City Council will distract our City from moving forward in a positive direction. Effective immediately, I hereby tender my resignation from the Berkley City Council. I am thankful to the residents for the opportunity to serve and for their continued support. I look forward to helping and contributing to the City of Berkley as a private citizen, in healthy and positive ways."
