“Due to personal reasons, I will be resigning from the City of Liberal Commission effective immediately,” “After much counsel with close acquaintances, friends and family, I have decided the job of city commissioner is not in the best interest of my family and I am choosing to focus my time, dedication and efforts on my personal life and my family. This will serve as the only correspondence I will have on the matter and I would appreciate your acceptance of this resignation and for the matter to be dealt with personally and respectfully. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, and I wish nothing but the best for the City of Liberal.  Justin Varnes.”

The Commission will best determine how to fill the vacancy on the Commission.
