Valerie Lemmie is leaving after three years as Cincinnati's city manager.
She hoped to move the city forward after it had been shaken by riots, but City Hall was more hostile than she expected.
September 11, 2005 is Lemmie's last official day of work. Lemmie says she found City Council unreceptive to the recommendations she and Mayor Charlie Luken made about day to day operations. She says Council did not provide a sense of direction and wouldn't collaborate on big issues.
The 53 year old is taking a year to be a scholar in residence researching public policy at the Kettering Foundation.
Lemmie says she is not surprised the city has had such turnover. Her immediate predecessor, John Shirey, left after attempts by some Council members to force him out failed.
