Our View: Thanks for your service Mayor Hamilton

 

Mayor Steven Hamilton resigned at the end of May.

In mid-May, Steven Hamilton announced his resignation as Mayor of the City of Three Forks.

Hamilton was in his second term as Mayor and had also served six years as a member of the city council. In a resignation letter addressed to local residents and council members, Hamilton said he was at a crossroads with his position as a teacher and mayor and has to follow his heart and do what is best for his students moving forward.

The Voice would like to thank Hamilton for everything he did for Three Forks. Hamilton served the residents of Three Forks for well over a decade and this is something he should be very proud. Serving in any public position requires far more than just a bi-weekly or monthly meeting. There are countless hours that go into the position. Along with the meetings, committees, events, and other tasks there are also the time spent listening to the concerns from local residents with phone calls or while shopping at Three Forks Market.

It was very clear that Hamilton has a passion and love for Three Forks.

He made the decision it was time to focus on his students and that is completely understandable. Thanks for everything you did for the city Mayor Hamilton.

Moving forward, Three Forks will have a new Mayor on June 25.

To whomever is elected, thanks for putting your name forward and being willing to take on what can be a thankless job.

There truly are a lot of great things going on in Three Forks with local businesses and growth. Whomever is elected will certainly face challenges that come with growth, but good luck and thanks for stepping up to the plate.
