CANNELTON - Cannelton Street Commissioner Jimmy Maffia has resigned, he told The News Monday.
"It's political - that's all I can tell you," he said. "I was asked to resign." A misunderstanding developed and "turned political," he added.
Cannelton Mayor Smokey Graves appointed Maffia to the position during the first common-council meeting of the year. Graves himself won election to his seat in November and began serving in the position as the new year dawned.
