Houston city clerk now wants to keep job

Posted: Sunday, October 10, 2010

WASILLA - The Houston city clerk, who quit on election day last week, now says he may have been too hasty and wants to keep his job.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that clerk Steve Cunningham sent a letter to the mayor and city council on Friday seeking to rescind his resignation letter. He resigned amid a controversy over whether he gave improper advice to a group seeking to recall former Mayor Roger Purcell.

Mayor Rosemary Burnett says council members will meet on Monday. If Cunningham still wants to rescind his resignation then, they will discuss his termination. Burnett says she has mixed feelings over the issue and doesn't trust Cunningham anymore.
