Chadbourn Mayor Fax Rector resigned Tuesday night in an emotional speech before Chadbourn City Council. Rector has been battling health issues for some time.
Mayor pro tem Donald Ray Bass is now serving as mayor.
Rector was a reluctant candidate for mayor in the last election. He was persuaded to run for another term and won handily as a write-in candidate. Rector served on council or as mayor for nine years.
Also at the meeting, Town Manager Stevie Cox officially announced his resignation. He will become city manager in a Washington, D.C. suburb in Maryland.
