The first deputy mayor of the city of Kokomo has announced his retirement. Randy McKay, who has worked for the city since 2010, will continue to serve as president of the Board of Works following his retirement June 3.
McKay began working for the city as assistant director of human resources and later served as interim director of development and director of operations. The latter position recently transitioned into the deputy mayor position.
"Randy McKay has poured his heart and soul into his work on behalf of the citizens of Kokomo," said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight. "Randy is a trusted advisor, a skilled manager, and a strong advocate for increasing the quality of life for our residents. More importantly, Randy is a longtime dear friend. I will miss his wise counsel and I wish him and Carolyn the best."
McKay said it has been an "honor" to work with Goodnight and on behalf of the citizens of Kokomo.
"The City has a great deal of talent working in the background. Good, quality, smart people; people who also understand the Mayor’s vision and work tirelessly to make it happen," said McKay. "I will miss the daily interaction with many of them. Residents need to know this and be proud that they have some of the best people thinking about, and working for, their future here in Kokomo."
