Charleston attorney and former state delegate Rusty Webb has resigned from the Charleston City Council less than four months after being appointed.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reported Webb decided to step down on Tuesday. He was a representative for the city's 17th Ward, which encompasses most of Kanawha City.

Webb was sworn into the council in January to replace former councilman John Miller, who also resigned. Webb's resignation letter to Mayor Danny Jones said his tenure was brief but very rewarding. The letter didn't provide a reason for his departure.

Webb is a member of the Charleston Urban Renewal Authority board and served four terms in the House of Delegates.

The mayor will recommend that Bobby Johnson fill the position, said Rod Blackstone, deputy major.
