Mercer County Board Chairman Tom Harris vowed to continue his work as chairman of the board following Union Representative Jeff Dale's request to resign from that position at the March 3 board meeting.

Following the meeting Harris said that after one and a half years of negotiations Dale is frustrated. "That's his opinion he can say anything he wants. We are all here trying to do the best we can."

Harris added, "If what I do doesn't meet with his satisfaction - so be it. I will not resign on his reccomendation."

Operator's Union 150 representative Jeff Dale addressed the Mercer County Board for about 20 minutes at the board's March 3 meeting, culminating in a request for Tom Harris' resignation as the chairman of the Mercer County Board.
