ROCKLAND — Councilor Amelia Magjik announced her resignation from Rockland City Council, effective end of October.
Magjik’s vacancy opens up a second seat, along with the seat held by Councilor Ed Glaser, which is set to expire. Councilor Glaser is running for re-election against newcomers Nate Davis, Ian Emmott, and Don Robishaw Jr.
All City Council seats represent three-year terms.
Magjik was elected to Council in November 2017 with an expected end date of November 2020.
Having roots in upstate New York and living on the West Coast for many years, she’d lived in Rockland a short time when she decided to compete against Rockland resident Steve Carroll for a vacant seat.
Magjik is a trained wholistic wellness coach who has been working at the front desk of a local construction company while living in Rockland.
In April 2017, she told the Chris Wolf Show that she’d chosen Rockland for its down-to-earth grittiness and old New England charm, and that she loves the Rockland lighthouse as a metaphor for "spreading the light."
She will now be moving out of state to be closer to family, according to City Manager Tom Luttrell.
