Kilgore City Manager Fired

In a abrupt and unexplained move, Kilgore City Commissioners voted to oust their city manager Tuesday night. To the objections of several Kilgore citizens who attended the meeting, commissioners voted 3-to-1 to dismiss Ron Stephens from his post as city manager. Our efforts to talk to commssioners were met with an official "no comment" today, although they did say they would have more details on the dismissal later in the week.
