Re: Michelle Araujo

Dear Mr. Stapp:

Please accept this letter as my resignation for the office of Municipal Judge effective May 31, 2007. I am resigning so I can concentrate as much as possible to the raising of my family. I have enjoyed working with the City of Lockney in the past and present. I understand that I am a part time employee and have no rights toward any future benefits or entitlement. I release the City from any claim or entitlements arising from my employment with the City of Lockney. Thank you for a very great working relationship. If you need me to complete any other documentation please contact me.

Sincerely,
Michelle Araujo
