Albany  --  Monday was the last day on the job for a Dougherty County Commissioner who's been struggling with health and legal problems.

Brenda Robinson-Cutler, elected in 2000, was indicted last year on theft and racketeering charges. Her trial has been postponed several times, and in recent months, she's been in poor health.

Today was her last commission meeting.  "I'm going to miss my family," Robinson-Cutler said. "They are family. They have been there for me when nobody else was there.  So I just want to say than you, thank you to everybody.  I hope that I've been the person you wanted me to be."

A special election will be held to fill Cutler's seat, most likely in March.  Muarlean Edwards has already announced her intentions to run for that spot.

Cutler is also charged in a 13-count indictment,  accused of hiring family and friends while she worked at the Albany Advocacy Resource Center and of stealing money from clients. Cutler says that did not influence her decision to resign.
