Alexander, who is also running for county judge-executive, notified the city council and others in attendance via a letter typed on Cadiz Police Department letterhead. He did not otherwise comment on or bring attention to his resignation during the meeting.
Alexander was solicited to the position of city administrator by Mayor Lyn Bailey and city council in March 2004.
“At the time,” reads his resignation, “[Cadiz] was dealing with several issues that I had some working knowledge of. Since that time the demands on both positions … have risen to a level that I feel both jobs need full attention of a full-time person.”
He also cited recommendations by the Kentucky League of Cities and a city auditor that the positions be filled by separate individuals.
Alexander’s resignation will be effective June 30, according to the letter.
The Cadiz Personnel Committee met March 29 — less than a week before Alexander’s resignation — to discuss the potential vacancies that would be created should Alexander be successful in his campaign for county-judge executive— first in May against fellow Democratic candidate Marc Terrell and again in November against Republican Stan Humphries.
