Benton Harbor city commissioner stepping down

A Benton Harbor City Commissioner says he's stepping down.

Trenton Bowens told FOX28 Saturday that his last day in office will be August 31st.

He says he has a medical condition that causes him to shake. Bowens said the "toxic environment" at City Hall is making his shaking disorder worse.

He says he also needs to take care of his grandfather, who is ill.
Bowens says before he leaves office, he wants to combat slumlords in Benton Harbor, something he says is a big problem in the city.

Bowens term officially ends next year. Someone will have to be appointed to complete the term.
