KERMIT - A new city leader has taken over Kermit but it hasn't come without a lot controversy.

Pete Kamfer took over as the new city manager on Monday.

Last month, the City Council approved hiring him.

Not long after, Mayor Bret Autry put in his resignation saying he didn't agree with the decision.

He argued that Kampfer has a history of suing the cities he's worked for and currently has nine pending cases against him by the New Mexico Attorney General.
