Trott resigns as mayor

David Trott

Umatilla Mayor David Trott has resigned, citing irreconcilable differences with the city council.

Trott has been at odds with other city leaders since January, when he called a special executive session to discuss the performance of city manager Russ Pelleberg and the city council chose to take no action on his concerns. In a lengthy resignation email sent to the council Wednesday night, Trott accused the council of putting “its collective head in the sand” and trying to quash any public discussion of problems Umatilla faces.
