After serving more than 13 years on the Logan Municipal Council, Steve Thompson is leaving that position at the end of this month. Thompson made the announcement at last night’s council meeting, surprising some of his colleagues.”I’ve had just a tremendous experience here on the city council but I wanted to let you know that I intend to resign my seat on the city council and I will be pursuing some opportunities with Logan City,” Thomspon announced at Tuesday’s council meeting. “I just give you, mayor, and the council a heads up.”Thompson said he decided to resign now rather than wait until his term ends this year because he is interested in a contract with Logan City. Thompson said earlier he hopes to be hired by the city to raise money for a new Library. An experienced fundraiser, he says he would seek federal stimulus money and lobby for state money as part of a capital campaign.Logan Municipal Council chair Laraine Swenson says the city will start advertising immediately for Thompson’s replacement. Thompson will be a guest on KVNU’s Crosstalk show next Tuesday and he’ll talk more about that idea and also review his experience on the council and his hopes for Logan City’s future.
