Superior 8th District Councilor Explains Reason For Resignation

SUPERIOR, Wis. — After nearly five years as a Superior city councilor, Craig Sutherland will have his last council meeting Tuesday evening.

Sutherland tells FOX 21 he’s resigning from the 8th District at the end of the month.

He plans to spend more time with his daughter and grow his CBD business, as he deals with the struggles of MS in his daily life.

“Given those extra hours a week, taking that away from city council and putting that into this is a win-win for me. I gotta do what’s right for myself first and foremost. My family and my health. But I’m excited about the future and I’m excited for the future of the city as well,” Sutherland said.

Sutherland said he’s most proud of working to help improve Superior’s police and fire departments.

Meanwhile, the council voted Tuesday night to accept applications and then temporarily appoint someone to Sutherland’s seat in December until a special election in April.

Whoever wins in April will serve the remainder of Sutherland’s term until April of 2023.
