With the unanimous support of her fellow council members, Ashley Kaiser took on her new role as president a few weeks ago. Since Ashley had served as vice president of the Council in her previous term, her adjustment to this new role hasn’t been particularly challenging. Nonetheless, nothing can be more difficult for any person in this position than to have an unanticipated vacancy in the town manager position. And that has turned out to be the case for President Kaiser as it was announced earlier this week that the current town manager, Charles “Chip” Koogle, and the Town Council had agreed to part ways.
In her first interview in her new role, Ashley talks about this current challenge and her and her colleagues. And on the lighter side, we also talk about the importance and fun expected on Centreville Day, planned for October 28th.
