Thank you, Eudora
I would like to thank the citizens of Eudora for the opportunity of serving as your Mayor for the past four years. I will always consider it a great honor to have earned your trust to fulfill the responsibilities of the office.
As you know, the date for filing for elected offices is fast approaching. It has been my intention to file to run for re-election as your Mayor, to try to again earn your votes.
However, as many of you know, recently the responsibilities of my full-time employment have required me to spend considerable time working out of town and away from the City. Additionally, the possibility exists that job responsibilities will continue to require me to be away from the City for extended periods of time.
Therefore, after much consideration, I have come to the decision that I will not be submitting my name to be placed on the ballot for re-election as your Mayor.
I feel that it is not fair to you, the citizens of Eudora, for me to seek re-election knowing that I may not be as available as I should be to fulfill the responsibilities of the office.
I am hopeful that someone in the community that has an eye to the future will step forward as a candidate to run for election to the office.
Again, I sincerely thank you for the opportunity to serve this great community.
Ronald D. Conner
Mayor of Eudora
