Ron Dudley now says he'll continue serving as mayor of Loda. He had announced earlier this month he would resign, effective September 1. The News-Gazette reports Dudley had changed his mind, and that a special meeting scheduled for Wednesday to discuss appointing his replacement is no scheduled.
Dudley never submitted a formal letter of resignation, only saying he "didn't like the way things were going; nothing being accomplished." Reports had Dudley "fed up with the village board fighting."
The 66-year-old retired postal worker, said he will serve the remainder of his four-year term. Dudley was elected president in April 2013. Dudley succeeded Carol Arseneau who decided not to seek a third consecutive four-year term.
