The Times-Herald Record is reporting that former New Rochelle Corporation Counsel has quit her job as the lawyer for the City of Newburgh, NY in Orange County
The paper reports she announced her resignation abruptly without giving a reason.
Mayor Nicholas Valentine said Nelson wrote in the note it had been a pleasure working for the city and her last day would be in two weeks. Valentine said he had no prior warning and didn't know what prompted the resignation.
UPDATE: The Times-Herald Record has an update.
Corporation Counsel Bernis Nelson announced her resignation in a note sent on Monday to the city clerk and acting city manager. Nelson said Tuesday in a phone interview that the long hours, month after month, convinced her to return to private practice.
"I am 58," Nelson said. "I have a husband and a mother and other things, and it has just become too much."
UPDATE: Newburgh Discussion Board has some thoughts.
