In a letter to citizens, city employees and councilors, Mayor Scaia said he would use his time away from city government to reflect, and to "make changes" in himself, for his children, and for his family. 

He says he will still be contributing to the city of Chisholm even after his resignation. "A common mistake people make is thinking that being a leader is the only way to make a difference or be involved. I plan to reflect on my time on the city council and utilize my strengths in other ways to make Chisholm a stronger community."

With Mayor Scaia's resignation, four offices will be up for election in 2018. 

In October, Scaia's brother Kevin, who is on the city council, was accused of groping a woman and faces a criminal charge.
