Ron Powers has attended his final regularly-scheduled meeting as a member of the Pulaski County Council. He’s retiring at the end of the month after two four-year terms, as is Pulaski County Sheriff Mike Gayer. Tensions between the two have frequently spilled over into meetings. Monday night Gayer set that aside.
“I just want to publicly thank Ron for his eight years of service as a council member. You’ve been a great a powerful adversary, but we survived it for eight years. I do appreciate your service that you’ve done,” Gayer said before shaking Powers’ hand.
Council President Jay Sullivan also presented Powers a plaque honoring his eight years of service to the county. Powers’ daughter, Linda, will take his place on the council in January.
