Kathi Hoder has resigned from the Aberdeen City Council.
On Wednesday night, prior to the regular council meeting, Hoder addressed the council with the news.
Hoder told KXRO that she purchased a home outside Hoquiam, which will move her outside Ward 4 and the Aberdeen City Limits.
Kathi was first elected in 2005 to fill a seat left open when former councilwoman Dorothy Voege was elected as Aberdeen Mayor.
Over the years, Kathi had been very vocal over a great number of issues within the city, sometimes assisted by a crow or other bird that joined her at her seat.
The council and audience gave Hoder a standing ovation as she stepped down.
The City of Aberdeen will accept nominations to fill her seat in Ward 4 before appointing someone into that position as an interim.
