Stone leaving mayoral seat for Senate
A special election will be scheduled soon in Ashland to elect a new mayor.
Bill Stone turned in his resignation November 7, the date after he won the State Senate District 2 race. Stone has served as mayor six and a half years. His resignation will be effective December 1.
The mayor’s office will officially be declared vacant during the next Ashland town board meeting on December 4.
A special election will be set in no less than 30 days and no more than 45 days from that date.
Possible dates, according to Stone, will be January 8 or January 15. An interim mayor will also likely be appointed in the December 4 meeting. Vice mayor is Sandra Gresham.
The newly-elected mayor will serve two and a half years of the unexpired term.
The next townwide election will be held in June 2009.
