WARREN, Pa. – From one area of service to the next.

John Wortman, who two weeks ago was voted onto to a Region I seat of the Warren County School Board, tendered his resignation as a member of Warren City Council during Monday’s meeting.

Wortman’s resignation was unanimously approved and is effective on Dec. 4, 2023 at 5:59 p.m.

“I want to thank the citizens of the city of Warren for the highest privilege of my life to serve as a member of council,” Wortman, who thanked all the fellow members of council, said. “I look forward to continuing to serve them on the Warren County School District Board of Directors. Warren is the greatest place to live in the world because of all the hard work that goes on here every day.”

Wortman has served on council for the last four years.

“I have some bias being his father, but looking at the work he has done, every position he takes on the votes he casts is thoughtful and well-informed,” said Mayor Dave Wortman. “He puts the time and effort into coming to a conclusion. As a younger person in the city of Warren and now the Warren County School Board, he is willing to put himself out there to take on jobs and responsibilities and that’s just fantastic.”
