McPherson County Attorney Torrance Parkins announced his resignation in a release this morning.
“Effective September 15, 2017, I am resigning the position of McPherson County Attorney. I appreciate the support and trust that the residents of McPherson County have placed in me as their County Attorney. After a great deal of deliberation, I have accepted a position in private practice. This decision was not made lightly, but it is in the best interests of me and my family.
I am hopeful that I can assist whoever succeeds me following a special election. As with any change, there may be inconvenience and disruption, but I plan to minimize that by staying in office and offering my best efforts to McPherson County until a new County Attorney is chosen."
We will keep you updated on this resignation as well as the hunt for a new county attorney.
