Charlottesville's city spokesperson is leaving his job at the end of this month.
Ric Barrick's resignation is effective March 30. He says he's leaving his post to find a new job that's less stressful.
Barrick points to two examples: coordinating the media coverage of the George Huguely murder trial and a recent internal city investigation in which he was cleared of any wrongdoing over a city contract issue.
Barrick has been the Charlottesville's spokesperson since 2006. He tells NBC29 he hopes to stay in the area.
