City official resigns redevelopment post


Follow The Republic:


Sarah Cannon, a member of the Columbus Redevelopment Commission, resigned Tuesday in a letter to Mayor Kristen Brown.

Cannon had served as president of the commission until January when Brown appointed herself as a member and was voted into the panel’s top position.

In her resignation letter, she wrote to Brown: “There is nothing I could have done in the past two years that would have taught me so much or brought me into contact with so many people.”

Cannon said her resignation was effective immediately.

Cannon was originally appointed to the commission in January 2012. She was reappointed by Brown in January for a one-year term to expire Dec. 31 of this year. She was elected vice president of the commission during its Jan. 2 reorganization meeting.

The redevelopment commission’s mission is to promote and encourage business growth and expansion in the city, while appropriating land use and improvements. It manages leases for the city, such as restaurants that operate in The Commons, and oversees the city’s parking garages.

Cannon is a vice president for First Financial Wealth Management in Columbus.
