Anna Hargis Resigns from City Council

Evansville City Councilwoman Anna Hargis submitted her notice of resignation on Tuesday morning to Vanderburgh County Republican Party Chairman Wayne Park.

Her final day of serving on the City Council will be August 11.

The Republican Party has four weeks to name a replacement before hearings for the 2018 city budget begin on August 28.

Hargis is resigning because she has accepted an offer to work as a Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch in Evansville. The position requires that she not serve in public office.

"This was a difficult decision as I've been honored to serve the city. I regret that my professional career will no longer allow me to be part of the council, but this was the best decision for my family. While my elected public service will soon come to an end, I look forward to remaining engaged with our community. I am hopeful my successor will be positive, curious, and have the best interest of our city at heart," says Hargis.

A 14-Republican Precinct Committee will select Hargis' replacement.

Chairman Parke says interested candidates must reside in Ward 3, be in good standing with the party, and submit a Declaration of Candidacy (Form CEB-5) to Chairman Parke no later than 72 hours before the caucus.

The caucus has not officially been scheduled yet.
