Covington mayor resigns after long career, but day-to-day operations won't be affected

Covington Mayor Denny Bowman has resigned his position as mayor of the Northern Kentucky city.

Bowman notified City Manager Larry Klein on Tuesday in a one sentence letter that said “My purpose in writing is to inform you that my last day serving as mayor will be September 30, 2011.”

Bowman ends a 27-year career working for the city, eight as the recreation director and 19 as an elected official.

In an interview with the Kentucky Enquirer, Bowman said that he was retiring, because of his disgust with other city officials and health concerns.

He went on to thank the citizens of Covington for voting for him in four mayoral elections.

Covington City Manager Larry Klein explains the process for replacing Bowman.

Klein went on to say the day to day running of the city will not be affected by Bowman’s resignation.
