LINCOLN COUNTY – Calvin Callahan, on Monday, Sept. 25, announced that he had resigned from the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors, effective at the adjournment of the board’s meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
Callahan had served as Supervisor of District 13, which covers Ward 4 in the Town of Bradley and the Towns of Somo and Wilson.
In a Monday, Sept. 25 release, Callahan said he stepped down due to his upcoming relocation out of Lincoln County’s 13th Supervisory District.
“During his tenure as a Supervisor, Calvin Callahan has tirelessly worked to represent the interests and needs of the constituents within the 13th district, advocating for positive change and solutions to various community issues,” the release said. “His commitment to public service and unwavering dedication to his constituents have left an indelible mark on Lincoln County.”
“It has been an honor and a privilege to represent the wonderful people of the 13th district on the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors,” Callahan stated.
The release said Callahan “extends his sincere appreciation to his fellow Board of Supervisors members, county staff and, most importantly, to the constituents of the 13th district for their support and collaboration throughout his time in office.”
Lincoln County Clerk Chris Marlowe said the timeline to appoint Callahan’s replacement will be determined by county’s Administrative and Legislative (A&L) Committee during its meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
Marlowe estimated that a candidate could be appointed by the board in November or December, “depending on interest.”
Callahan was elected to the Lincoln County board in 2018. Along with serving on the board, he was also a member of the A&L and Forestry Committees and was Chair of the Broadband Committee. His term expires in April 2024.
Callahan will continue to serve as Representative of the state’s 35th Assembly District, a position in which, Callahan said, he will “continue his advocacy and dedication to the needs of the community on a broader scale.”
