Todd wrote in his letter it had been an honor to serve as Albert Lea’s city manager, and it was with great sadness that he submitted the resignation for personal reasons. 

“I believe in this organization, its staff and elected body,” he wrote. “I have been in awe of the dedication shown by all in serving this great community. City staff, the council, community members, as well as other partners will hold a special place in my heart.”

Todd was not present at the virtual meeting, and Mayor Vern Rasmussen Jr. read the letter Todd submitted. 

Second Ward Councilor Larry Baker and Assistant City Manager Jerry Gabrielatos wished Todd the best in his future endeavors and thanked him for his time spent in Albert Lea.

“I am confident that the great work from city staff will continue down the path toward making Albert Lea a great place to work, live and play,” Todd said.
