BREAKING: Searcy A&P Commission Chairman Resigns from Parks and Rec. Board–UPDATE

The following email (legally obtained through the Freedom of Information Act) details the resignation of Searcy A&P Commission Chairman Kent Bruxvoort from the Parks and Recreation Board.

It will be interesting to see how the city council/commission fill the vacancy, especially considering, legally speaking, the commission does not even exist:

From: Kent Bruxvoort []

Cc: Belinda Laforce
Subject: Parks and Rec Advisory Board


This week I started my new job in Fort Worth. Sometime in the next few weeks Cheri and I will be moving to the Fort Worth area. At this point, while I am officially still a resident of Searcy it does not seem proper to continue to serve on a board that I am unable to be a part of. Please accept my resignation as of your meeting on Tuesday, October 13.

I am disappointed to be leaving at a time when I think our hard work over the last 10 years is finally starting to pay off. Hopefully you will find someone with more time to devote to the Searcy Parks and Recreation Department than I have for the last few months.

I guess this also ends a long run of playing city league basketball as well. I wasn’t too good anymore anyway!
