Cammack resigns as town council president
Long-time Corydon Town Council president Fred Cammack resigned the position Monday night at the town’s regularly-scheduled meeting.
Cammack, who has been on the council for 40 years, will remain on the board.
‘Effective immediately, I am resigning my positions as president of the Town of Corydon council and town manager,’ Cammack said, reading from a prepared statement. ‘I have greatly appreciated and enjoyed my time of service in these positions. I will continue to serve as an elected member of the town board and look forward to working with the new president and town manager to continue to work in the best interest of the Town of Corydon and all of its citizens.’
John D. Kintner was elected as the new president. Joining Kintner in favor of the move was Mark L. Parks and Judy L. Kennedy. Roger L. McGraw voted against.
‘John will be the chair; I’ll be the back-up,’ Cammack said.
Kintner, who has served on the board for 8-1/2 years, said Cammack will remain on the various boards he’s been appointed to.
‘We all think he’s done a good job in the position,’ Kintner said of Cammack. ‘We definitely want him to stay on the board; the whole council was in agreement with that.’
Kintner said he’ll be available at the town hall throughout the day.
‘The only difference is, instead of him calling me at the shop from that chair, I’ll be calling him from that chair,’ Kintner said.
He said through the years, even though people have disagreed with Cammack, he’s never heard anyone say a bad thing about him.
‘We can’t please everybody,’ Cammack said. ‘But what we can do is talk to them.’
