Almost a year after being elected Alexandria Mayor, Clara Lee Vantrease has called it quits.

She officially submitted her resignation Monday morning, citing personal reasons for the decision.

Vantrease, a former city employee, ran unopposed for mayor in September, 2005.

She told WJLE Monday night that while she loves Alexandria and the people of the town and enjoyed serving them, she felt it was time to step aside and let someone else take over who might do a better job.

Alderman and Vice Mayor David Cripps is now the acting Mayor of Alexandria.

Others on the council are Aldermen Charles Griffith, James Keyes, Eddie Tubbs, and Sarah Walker.

Alderman Roy Scott also resigned on July 18th, citing personal reasons for his decision.
