What’s going on in Ingram?


Ingram isn’t technically a city we cover here at Kerrville United, but this series of events has us puzzled. Let’s look at this timeline…

  • April 7, 2015 – Ingram city manager Stan Neuse resigns due to health reasons
  • June 16, 2015 – Ingram hires interim city manager John Washburn
  • January 19, 2016 – City manager John Washburn resigns unexpectedly after only seven months of service
  • January 2016 – City of Ingram settles a lawsuit regarding political targeting and civil rights violations. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
  • January 2016 – City Marshal Rowan Zachry retires and one of his subordinates, Deputy Marshal Jimmy Furr, resigns
  • January 2016 – An accountant is fired from city hall
  • January 27, 2016 – Ingram Mayor James Salter resigns just a few months before the May election

Now, we’re not sure if any of these things are related or are just pure coincidence, but it smells like a story that the Kerrville Daily Times or West Kerr Current should be investigating.
