Hahira City Manager, Mayor resign

July 5, 2006

Hahira - A South Georgia City Manager said disputes with city council members led to his resignation.

Hahira City Manager Tom Weldon submitted his letter of resignation effective June 7th.  Mayor Johnny Stalvey also quit.  Before coming to Hahira, Weldon served almost 40 years with the Department of Defense.  

Weldon said he and council members had different opinions on the role of the city manager.  "You must be held accountable for your decisions, but you need the authority that goes along with that responsibility. I don't feel I have the authority necessary to make the decisions and to assume the responsibilities the council requires, so I'm going to step aside," Weldon said.

The council must decide whether to hold a special September election to pick a new mayor or wait until the November General Election.  They are currently searching for a new city manager.
