Hugh Chumley, the Kenai Peninsula Borough mayor's chief of staff, submitted his resignation Friday. Chumley's resignation will take effect Feb. 19.
"I am at a point in my life where I wish to focus on my family and other interests and needs," Chumley said in a borough press release.
Mayor Dave Carey said he "regretfully" accepted the resignation.
"Mr. Chumley's expertise as a long standing business leader on the Kenai Peninsula and in the oil and gas industry have been a great asset to my administration," Carey said in the release. "He has been very instrumental in affecting change and adding value to processes within the borough during is employment. Mr. Chumley brought his many years of business experience and leadership with him to the chief of staff position and replacing that expertise will be a challenge."
