Dewey-Humboldt Councilman Hiles resigns, says he cannot work with mayor

Sue Tone

Dewey-Humboldt council member David Hiles submitted a letter of resignation, effective April 3, to Town Manager Yvonne Kimball on March 13, the day after voters re-elected Mayor Terry Nolan.

"I cannot and will not serve another two plus years with Terry Nolan as Mayor," Hiles said in the brief letter.

At the March 19 council meeting, council member Mark McBrady, Vice Mayor Dennis Repan and Nolan stated their reluctance to grant the resignation.

"I realize we have differences, but that's part of the process," Nolan said.

With Hiles abstaining and council members Denise Rogers and Nancy Wright absent, the council voted unanimously to accept the resignation.

The town will advertise the open seat beginning April 4. Those interested in applying should contact the town at 928-632-7362.

IMHO- the recent election in Dewey is clearly a mass expression of disgust, distrust, and desperation by all who did not vote.
There was NO ONE to vote for for mayor.
And as for council races- one councilwoman claims she wants to stop zoning enforcement by complaint. Does that mean she wants thugs to canvass and inspect every residence in D-H for "infractions? (fines are really great revenues for towns). She clearly does not favor adopting a rural zoning code- or she would have said so.
You have another councilwoman who is keen on "investing in the community". "Investing" is usually code for taxing so the city can spend other peoples money.
Dewey ballots need a "none of the above" box on them. At least then we would have someone to vote for.

Getting 530 out of 2,394 registered voters or 22% is not a majority of voters much less a landslide. Jack Hamilton got the most votes with 593. Was it a pro Terry Nolan vote or just a win by apathy?

What is sad is that more didn't vote or run for office. Apparently ignorance is bliss in Dewey-Humboldt.

It is obvious that "Punk" has never been to or watched a Council meeting. If Punk had done so it would be obvious why Mr. Hiles resigned. I have either watched or attended most. Mr. Nolan is a typical "good old boy" that has no code of ethics or a desire to do what is best for D-H. His campaign flyer show his ignorance when he wrote "The Counsel is not as erotic as it used to be". Mr. Hiles resignation is a loss to the Town. Too bad it wasn't Mr. McBrady who resigned, he should!

By resigning the way he did and while stating he can't work with the current mayor, (read: stomping off like a spoiled child who didn't get his way), Mr. Hiles is also showing great disrespect to the majority of voters of our community. If you read the election results you'll see that Mayor Nolan won by a landslide. His competitiors didn't even come close. I guess "majority rule" wasn't part of Hile's political platform after all. Mr. Hiles, i'll bet that on your report cards from school you got an "F" for "Does not play well with others!". Good riddance.

34% of D-H residents voted for the incumbent Mayor. Hiles resigns. Turmoil already. More to come.

D-H "you made your bed, now sleep in it." You have the vision of a blind javalina!

I had the pleasure of serving on Town Council with David Hiles for two years. I can tell you, he was one of the most consistent members of the Town Council reflecting the true spirit of our community. With every change in Town Code, new Ordinance or Issue David always asked, "How do we make this less restrictive and simpler for the residence of our Town." Do not judge his resignation too harshly, until you have walked a mile in his shoes, i.e. served on Town Council with our Mayor. If anyone thinks it is easy, go ahead and apply for the open Town Council seat.

I live in Humboldt. I have never met this guy, David Hiles, but I think his resignation is ludicrous. Nolan won big, fairly and squarely. Hiles is behaving like a child. Good riddance. He can stand aside and squel like a little brat.
I think that under Mayor Nolan things have visibly improved. Hiles reminds me of the little kid who pulled his baseball from a sandlot game because he didn't get to bat often enough. Fortunately, there were other baseballs around.
