Wilhite Resigns

Marsha Willhite


Editor’s Note: Holly Mayor Brad Simon said the Board of Trustees held an executive session earlier this week regarding the Administrator’s resignation.  “We discussed her absence and what direction we’d take to find a replacement,” he said, adding, “There had been a little talk with her about stepping down at some point, and I believe she felt the time was right.”  Simon said the town’s administrator contract is renewed annually in January.

Willhite had been instrumental in directing Holly’s short range and long term recovery efforts following the devastation of the 2007 tornado which leveled numerous homes in late March of that year. She had been asked to discuss those efforts at several speaking engagements across the state in the years that followed.  According to acting Administrator, Mary Rushton, Willhite began her duties as Administrator in 2002 and prior to that had run her own retail businesses in Lamar and Holly.

Willhite currently serves as one of two Holly representatives to the ARPA, Arkansas River Power Authority Board of Directors. ARPA has stated they are aware of her resignation as administrator for the Town of Holly, but have not had any indication from her on her status as an ARPA board director.  Willhite was also past president of PCDI, Prowers County Development Incorporated.

(Editor’s Note:  The recent ARPA meeting agenda for Thursday, November 20, 2014 now lists only David Willhite as the Holly representative to the ARPA board of directors.)
