The attached report is from the night Millington Mayor Richard Hodges finally did what many constituents wanted..leave office. Hodges chose to call his departure a retirement rather than resignation and won't actually leave until January 13, 2012. Hodges was arrested weeks ago for allegedly using city resources to pay gambling debts to a local business owner. That followed an earlier TBI raid of his home and office. Rumors of Hodges' possible resignation led me to be assigned to virtually every Millington city council meeting since the raid. I, for one, am glad I might not have to go back any time soon.
