City Clerk Stephanie Tigner threw Stockbridge officials a curveball this week by abruptly resigning. Tigner’s departure comes less than a month after City councilman Richard Steinberg resigned just before an administrative hearing to decide whether to remove him from office for alleged violations of the city charter. Steinberg has a lawsuit pending against the city.
City officials were surprised by the latest departure especially since Tigner was getting glowing reviews for her work. Tigner was named city clerk of the Henry County town after her predecessor Rhonda Blackmon was fired earlier this year.
