CAREY, Ohio (WKRC) - A small town mayor is resigning amidst a big controversy.

Armand Getz of Carey, Ohio wanted to drop the Lord's Prayer and Pledge of Allegiance from council meetings, but the village council members didn't agree.

They voted unanimously to reinstate a moment of silence and the pledge, so the mayor resigned.

Neither party is commenting on the controversy as of yet.
