Jackson Public Works Director Robert Miller resigned as public works director today. He announced the decision on social media. He has been on leave for several weeks. Here is his post:
"It’s Time to Go Home
"Marilee and I have enjoyed our time in Mississippi, but it’s time for us to go home to Kentucky. I have recently wrapped up my time as Public Works Director with the City of Jackson. It was a privilege to serve Mayor Lumumba and you through these challenging times. We are grateful for your prayers and words of encouragement that lifted and carried us. I am enthusiastic and optimistic about the future of Jackson. There is never a good time to leave the battlefield, but I have provided work plans that may be useful as the City goes forward. We have met many wonderful people and enjoyed your hospitality. We hope that you will stay in touch. Perhaps our paths will cross again someday. Until then, please know that we appreciated you and your wonderful community!"
