Opa-locka Mayor Matthew Pigatt unexpectedly announced his resignation during tonight’s city commission meeting. "I naively thought that I could help reform this city from the inside by being the change I wish to see in this community and bringing in a new generation of leadership," he said. Pigatt also said he "refuses to be a figurehead for corruption."
