INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — Call it a politician boldly going where no one has gone before.

On Thursday, David Waddell used the Klingon language to write his letter of resignation from the Indian Trail Town Council in North Carolina.

Waddell said he opted to use Klingon, the language of a warrior race on the Star Trek TV shows and movies, as an inside joke. Mayor Michael Alvarez is calling the letter unprofessional.

Waddell said he is resigning at the end of this month. His four-year term expires in December 2015.

Waddell said he also needs to devote time to mounting a write-in campaign on the Constitution Party's platform against U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.
