Campbell County Attorney Ron Wirthwein is resigning effective Monday.
"Serving the community in any capacity is an important calling. In my time as a prosecutor I have had many successes and, of course, some failures," Wirthwein said in a letter to Campbell County commissioners sent Thursday afternoon. "Not every case ended exactly the way that I wanted it to, but I am secure in the knowledge that I did all I could for the people of Campbell County."
Wirthwein was a former chief deputy county attorney and was elected in 2014 to be the county attorney and re-elected in 2018. His term ends in 2022.
"I am sure there are many good people who will want to step up into the role of County Attorney and I have faith that the Republican Party will send three well-qualified individuals," he wrote. "I also have faith that the Commissioners will select the best person for the job. I know that Campbell County will be in good hands."
Wirthwein's letter did not give a reason for his resignation.
