At the same meeting, Cranmer was presented with an official certificate of appreciation by Councilmember Dale Kling [Ward 3] and Mayor Bill Hennessey for his service to the city from April 2017 to September 2018.
The resignation resulted from Cranmer purchasing a new home outside the city limits. As a result, he can no longer hold a city council position.
Cranmer was elected to the city council in 2017, but originally got involved in politics in April 2016 when he volunteered time to a federation that lobbied on behalf of cyclists and pedestrians within the state of Missouri. While serving on the city council, some of Cranmer’s interests have included progress toward a long-term, strategic plan for the city, lower taxes and safer streets.
“It has been a wonderful experience serving with you and for you, and I appreciate the new friendships,” Cranmer said at the Sept. 13 meeting. “I consider being elected one of my life’s greatest achievements.”
