  Newkirk City Commissioner Chuck Bloomfield resigned from the city commission Monday night, contingent on the sale of his home.

 Bloomfield said Monday night he has purchased a home south of Newkirk, outside the city limits.

 Bloomfield read a prepared statement announcing his resignation. 

 “Most people that know much about my wife and I know we moved to Newkirk about 4 years ago from Nebraska. Most people don’t know that we both grew up as farm kids. Both of our dads were dairy farmers at one time. Barb and I each grew up taking care of livestock, and having the freedom of country living. We have been married for almost 18 years, and prior to moving to Oklahoma, we lived our entire married life in the country. It is a life that we truly miss. We really miss raising our own beef. We always knew we wanted to be back in the country if we could find a place that would fit into our budget. This being said, we have found a place we like, and our bid has been accepted contingent on my house selling. My house is now for sale, and as soon as it sells, I will be resigning my seat on the City Commission.”

 Bloomfield defeated incumbent commissioner A.J. Ford and Fred Lewman in March 2013.
