Paducah City Manager asked to resign by Mayor
PADUCAH, KY — Paducah Mayor Brandi Harless has asked City Manager Jeff Pederson to resign.
According to a news release, Harless has asked Pederson to submit his letter of resignation. The request was made after a closed session of Tuesday’s night Paducah Board of Commissioners meeting.
Harless said she is asking for his resignation based of her belief that a majority of the City Commission feels the same.
