CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Cape Coral City Council Member Rick Williams stepped down from his position with the city, according to a release from the city of Cape Coral.

Williams submitted a letter of resignation to the council Thursday that went into effect immediately.

“I want to thank Rick for his contributions and service to the City and the Cape Coral residents,” said Mayor John Gunter. “On behalf of the City Council, we wish him well.”
