Salem City Councilman Tim Hudspeth is stepping down because he is moving out the city limits.

Salem City Councilman Timothy Hudspeth has turned in his letter of resignation.

Hudspeth says the resignation is necessary because he is moving outside the city limits. He notes he would not be stepping down if it was not for his move to a property that will allow him to pursue a life-long dream.

Hudspeth says work on bringing the new Denny's Restaurant and replacing the fencing on West Main west of Kinney Boulevard are among the highlights of his two-year tenure. Hudspeth was first appointed to the city council and then was elected last year to a four year term.

Salem Mayor Rex Barbee has the responsibility for bringing the name of a potential new city council person to the council for concurrence. He is asking anyone who would like to be appointed to provide a letter of interest by March 13th. Barbee hopes the council will then be able to name a councilman at the March 19th meeting and seat the new member at the April 2nd meeting.

The person named will serve until the April 2019 election, when someone will be elected to a two-year unexpired term.

Barbee says he is appreciative of the work Hudspeth has done, calling him conscientious, frugal in spending, and serving the community the best he can. He's hoping his replacement can also work well with the rest of the council and have the best interest of the city at heart.
