Worrell submits resignation from council

PULASKI — It’s official.
Mayor-elect Jeff Worrell will officially resign his seat on Pulaski Town Council effective June 30.
He will assume the position of mayor July 1.
Worrell signed and submitted his letter of intended resignation to Town Manager John Hawley’s office Thursday afternoon, according to Clerk of Council Trish Cruise.
The move will free up the town to begin seeking a replacement to fill Worrell’s council seat.
Worrell beat out two opponents in the May 6 election to become mayor.
At a recent town council work session, council discussed a potential method for filling the seat.
Town Manager John Hawley said he believes past situations have involved having interested participants submit a letter explaining why they would like to serve on council and what qualifications they possess for the job.
However, at that time, Town Attorney David Warburton informed Hawley and the Town Council that they cannot try to fill a seat that has not yet been vacated.
Until Worrell resigns from his council seat, there is not a vacant position, Warburton noted.
Once Worrell resigns, council has 45 days to fill the vacancy, according to town code.
The person appointed would serve the remaining time left on Worrell’s term, then have to seek re-election if he or she desires to remain on council.
Worrell’s current council term expires June 30, 2010.
