Yucca Valley Town Councilman Chad Mayes has resigned his council seat.

Mayes, who broke the news at Monday night’s council meeting, says his duties as chief of staff to San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford was demanding too much of his time, and combined with his council obligations was interfering with family life.
