MAYOR I-IALLER Mayor H. K. Haller, v/ho has served as the chief executive of Pine Knoll
Shores for more thaii four years, has resigned his position, and also
RESIGNS as a member of the Board of Commissioners, effective April 15•
In his letter of resignation, read by Mayor Pro-Tem Wayne Cleveland at
the regular meeting of the Board, Mr. Haller said "I doubt that the people of the
Town fully realize the effort, the time, the thought and, indeed, the cost involved
in serving as a Commissioner or as yotir Mayor. For me," he went on, "it has meant
regular hours at the Town Hall five days a week, curtailing vacations so as to
limit my absences from the job, frequent meetings on week-ends and at night,
innumerable calls at home relating to a broad spectrum of problems, many out-of-
town trips and, above all, the assumption of joint responsibility with my colleagues
for the daily functioning of the Town and for the planm.ng of its future.
"For this full time service the Mayor receives no compensation; yet he most
certainly does receive a3.1 of the criticism in which anyone wishes to indulge.
Incidentally," he asserted, "the most vocal critics are usually persons who have
never done anything at all for the Tom."
14r. Haller said he hoped these observations may help bring to the citizens of
Pine Knoll Shores a realization of the sacrifices that the Commissioners are called
upon to make. "An occasional word of appreciation will go far to reward them," he
COMMISSIOI^R TO Under the charter of Pine Knoll Shores, in the event of a
