Alderman Brian Brush Announces Resignation

Working out of town is nothing new for many Scotland County residents. But a new employment opportunity for a Memphis alderman has prompted his resignation from the city council, as the travel will definitely exceed the typical commute.

East Ward Alderman Brian Brush announced his resignation at the May 3rd meeting of the council. Brush has stated he has accepted a maintenance position with a Georgia based company that ultimately will be sending him overseas for a year.

“I would like to thank the city staff, council members and the mayor for the opportunity of working with and for the citizens of Memphis,” Brush stated. “It has been a very honorable and valuable experience over the past year.”

The resignation will officially be dated May 13 and is pending Brush’s deployment with Lear Siegler Services, Inc.

Mayor Roger Gosney stated Brush would continue to serve the city until this time. He indicated the city would then seek qualified applicants to fill the remainder of Brush’s unexpired term. He was elected in April 2006 to a two-year term.

Gosney indicated the city council would likely meet with prospective candidates at the June meeting and he would then make an appointment subject to the council’s approval.

Brush was thanked for his dedicated service to the community. He was encouraged to consider seeking reelection upon the completion of his service and indicated a desire to do so.
