ANTHONY HERMAN SMITH RESIGNS SENECA COUNCIL SEAT
December 12, 2018 Dick Mangrum
Last night’s meeting of the Seneca City Council opened without a familiar face. Absent from his seat was Anthony Herman Smith, and there soon followed an explanation. Mayor Alexander announced that Smith is resigning after applying for and accepting a job with the city’s Light and Water Warehouse. Alexander read a letter from Smith which, in part, referred to family considerations. A widower, Smith recently married, and he wants more time to spend with his wife. The city will now turn to the county election office for the necessary process to fill Smith’s council seat.
