Kennesaw councilwoman Yvette Daniel has resigned, the city said Friday in a three-sentence news release.

The Augusta native’s Post 2 term was set to expire in 2019.

Just before the 2016 presidential election, Daniel told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that she considered herself the only Democrat on the city’s nonpartisan council.

“Daniel cites personal reasons as the cause of her resignation and asks that the privacy of her family be respected during this time,” the city said.

Daniel’s city biography lists her as a retired U.S. Army member, a personal trainer and as a cancer survivor, who advocates for healthy living.

It goes on to say that the mother of four received her undergraduate degree in Healthcare Management from Southern Illinois University and a clinical degree from George Washington University in blood banking. She has a master’s in public administration from Central Michigan University.

The mayor and council will meet soon to discuss plans for a special election to fill the seat, the city said.
