Fultz resigns from Olive Hill City Council

April 24, 2013 — At the end of last week’s Olive Hill City Council meeting, member Angie Johnson Fultz announced her resignation from the city’s governing body.

“I recently got married and I’m in the process of moving to Sandy Hook to live with my husband, so I won’t be living in the city limits anymore,” Fultz said.

She expressed that resigning was the right thing to do because she didn’t want to give the impression she was still residing in Olive Hill, even though she still owns a home here.

“I’ve built too much integrity to do something like that. Keeping my word is important,” Fultz said.

She won her Council seat in the November 2012 election and her resignation comes just four months after taking office.

“I’m going to take away a lot of things from my time. I have a new understanding of barriers and the work it takes to institute change. And more than anything, I now understand how much the City Council needs the community to be involved,” Fultz said.

Her resignation will become effective May 15, at which point the City Council will have 30 days to appoint someone to fill the vacant seat.

If no action is taken within that time period, Gov. Steve Beshear will make the appointment.

Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 286-4201.

    The Family Fun Night project began as a Relay for Life fundraiser. As the leadership class continued, I realized that the event could be more than a simple outdoor movie- and that it would need to be more than a simple fundraiser to truly be successful.
