LANCASTER, Ohio (WTVN) -- Lancaster will be naming a new mayor following the resignation of Brian Kuhn.
Kuhn turned in a letter of resignation at a special meeting of City Council Monday morning.
The resignation follows a series of articles in the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette regarding his gambling habits and questionable business practices.
In his letter, Kuhn said, "I believe I have performed the duties of Mayor in a manner that has served the city well during 2016. However, I do understand that confidence in me as a leader has diminished since taking office thirteen months ago."
Kuhn's last day in office was planned for this coming Friday.
