Lemoore City Council Member John Gordon has resigned, citing health and family reasons.
In a letter Thursday to City Manager Jeff Laws, Gordon said he has started a demanding daily physical therapy program for his cerebral palsy.
Gordon, a lawyer, was in his first term that expires this year. The Lemoore City Council will decide July 1 whether to appoint someone to fill the seat or leave it open until the November election.
