Chuck Bloomfield resigns


by Scott Cloud/Newkirk Herald Journal

Newkirk City Commissioner Chuck Bloomfield resigned from the city commission Monday night, effective September 14th.

 Bloomfield said Monday night he and his wife are purchasing property outside the city limits and will be moving.  He said they are going to rent their current home.

 Previously, Bloomfield had resigned from the commission pending the sale of his home in Newkirk but his home did not sell.

 “This place was too good to pass up,” Bloomfield said. 

 Bloomfield said he plans to serve through August with the September 14th meeting tentatively his last meeting.
 “That will give the current commissioners time to appoint a new commissioner,” he said.

 Bloomfield has served over two years, his office will be on the ballot next election cycle.
