Quincy alderman withdraws resignation over replacement

QUINCY (WGEM) – Ward 1 Alderman Virgil Goehl has withdrawn his resignation, just three days after announcing to the Quincy City Council that he would be stepping down.

Goehl, a Democrat, said the local Democratic Committee met Wednesday night and picked a replacement for him, but Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore, a Republican, declined to accept the appointment.

Goehl was set to officially resign at the next council meeting on Monday, but said he will stay until the mayor accepts the appointee chosen by the committee.
