Mayor resigns - but why?

The Associated Press

        ASHLAND, Ky. — The mayor of Ashland has resigned and has offered no explanation to city officials.

        In a brief letter to city commissioners, Mayor Paul Reeves gave no reason for his resignation Friday and gave no public comment, the Independent of Ashland reported.

        Commissioner Kevin Gunderson said he didn't know why Mr. Reeves resigned and that he was “very surprised and shocked.”

        Mr. Gunderson said he hadn't been in touch with Mr. Reeves in more than a week, even though the two usually spoke every two or three days.

        Mr. Reeves was elected to a four-year term in November 2000, defeating incumbent Mayor Rudy Dunnigan.
