Amsterdam alderman resigns following arrest


AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (WRGB) - The Amsterdam alderman accused of patronizing a prostitute has resigned.

A representative of 63-year-old Rodney Wojnar sent a letter of resignation to Amsterdam Mayor Mike Villa on Monday.

The letter says Wojnar regrets the negative publicity the recent allegations have brought on the city and hopes his resignation will allow Amsterdam to return to business as usual.

Wojnar is scheduled to be in court later this month.
