INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. (WTVD) — Call it a politician boldly going where no one has gone before.

David Waddell used the Klingon language to write his letter of resignation Thursday from the Indian Trail Town Council in North Carolina.

Waddell says he opted to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race on the “Star Trek” TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. Mayor Michael Alvarez is calling the letter unprofessional.

Waddell says he is resigning at the end of this month. His four-year term expires in December 2015.

Waddell says he also needs to devote time to mounting a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party’s platform against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.

Full text of the submitted resignation is on the Charlotte Observer’s website. The translation reads:

Teach (the) city (the) constitution
I will return next time to (witness) victory.
Resignation occurs in 2014 the 31st of January.
Perhaps today is a good day (to) resign.
David Waddell

    Why do we need to know Robin Roberts’ sexual preference? Or anybody’s for that matter. Too much information. That should be her business and her business only!
