Since May, five Ashland city officials have left their positions. Now, the mayor decided to step down on Wednesday.
It had been a long three months for Ashland Mayor Gene Rhorer.
“I signed up for a two-year term and I tried like heck to finish it out and it just occupied too much of my time,” Rhorer said.
Rhorer just took over as mayor in July after former Mayor Michael Jackson moved to Texas. He says he had been considering resignation for a year. He was previously an alderman.
