WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (KRDO) -- Jim Pfaff abruptly resigned from the Woodland Park City Council on April 15 just before posting a video to social media explaining his move while the city still searches for a new mayor.
Pfaff posted a 12-minute video to his city council Facebook page the day after his resignation, criticizing some who were part of a recall effort against him after raising concerns about his eligibility to be on the city council ballot in the first place.
"I have submitted my resignation from the council. I have a massive effort that I am undertaking with my company and my partners," Pfaff said in the video.
Pfaff said he didn't have the time anymore to serve on the council because there is too much to do with the company he is founding.
The people behind the recall effort accused Pfaff of falsifying his residency records to become a candidate. Woodland Park requires city council candidates to live within city limits for at least one year. Pfaff, however, has called some behind the recall effort "scoundrels" and "liars."
