Second Ward Alderman Kevin Kelleher has resigned from the Sandwich City Council. Sandwich Mayor Rich Robinson made the announcement at the Sandwich City Council meeting Monday. Kelleher was not at the meeting. 
WSPY news reached out to Kelleher Monday night for comment. Mayor Robinson says with the April Consolidated Election so close, he won't fill the seat.
Kelleher withdrew from the Consolidated Election in January after his petitions were challenged for not having the circulator's signature and not being notarized. Kelleher blamed City Clerk Denise Ii for the mix-up at a January Electoral hearing.
Kelleher was elected to the city council in 2017 by just 16 votes.
 
Rebecca Johnson is the only candidate running for the Second Ward Alderman's seat in April's Election.
