Altus Chief of Operations Resigns

ALTUS Okla_ Altus' Chief of Operations, Robert Stephenson has resigned.

He said he was tired of being called "a liar". In a recording of his resignation announcement from last Thursday that 7News was able to find on the Internet, Stephenson said, "This is to advise you and serve as my notice of resignation of my position and further employment with the City of Altus. Please consider the effective date and time as of 8:000 Monday morning, 20 May, 2013."

Stephenson spoke for 1 ½ minutes. He told the city council they'd publicly called him a "liar" twice recently. Stephenson said he felt their name-calling would lead to his diminished standing among his peers and Altus citizens.

Stephenson has been with the Public Works Department since March of 1999.

He was scheduled to sit down with 7News Reporter Jonathan Rozelle to discuss his resignation, but later declined.
