BAKER CITY — Baker City Mayor Matt Diaz announced during the Tuesday, July 11, city council meeting that he will resign July 16 because he is moving from the city, and per the city charter would not be eligible to continue serving as a councilor.

Diaz said his decision to relocate his family had nothing to do with the recent controversy over a meme he shared on his personal Facebook page, and was rather out of a need for more lucrative work.
