KERMIT - Kermit residents were left with a lot of questions when Mayor Bret Autry suddenly turned in his resignation.
It happened right after Pete Kampfer was hired as the new city manager.
Autry apparently disagreed with the choice.
He argued Kampfer has nine pending cases by the New Mexico Attorney General and a history of suing the cities he's worked for which cost the cities in lawsuits.
Kampfer was supposed to start the job last month but council members postponed it while an investigation was done to see if he gave them misleading information.
