(Lawrenceburg, IN) - Dearborn County Administrator Bryan Messmore says he will not be reappointed to the position in 2009.
The move would not be official until at least the first County Commissioners meeting in January.
"I think part of it is they associated me with whatever the 'anti group' is against," Messmore said when asked why he thought he will not be reappointed. "It's not uncommon to change either when you have new leadership and they want to establish a new direction."
Messmore says it's undecided if the new group of commissioners will appoint a new county administrator or do away with the position.
"I would think they would want to coordinate a little bit with County Council to make sure they want to continue to fund the position as well," he said.
The new-look, three-member commission will include commissioner-elect Tom Orschell who defeated incumbent Rick Fox in the November election. He joins Ralph Thompson and the re-elected Jeff Hughes.
The Lawrenceburg resident who says he enjoys being in leadership positions hasn't shut the door on running for public office again in the future.
"It's fun and it's humbling working in your community and being a part of the discussion and the conversation and the arguments every day, but sometimes it can be a burden, too."
