Mayor Mike Butler submitted his letter of resignation last Wednesday. He did not provide a reason for leaving the position.

Sturgeon's city clerk told ABC 17 News the board of aldermen accepted Butler's resignation in a meeting Monday night. The board plans to wait until after the April 5 election to appoint a new mayor.

Danny Joiner, Seth Truesdell and David Day are running for an at-large seat on the Sturgeon Board of Aldermen. Voters in the city will be able to choose two of the candidates on the ballot.
