Thompson (ND) has announced the appointment of Desmond “Desi” Sporbert as acting interim mayor. The move follows the recent resignation of Karyn Hippen.
Hippen announced last week that she was stepping down after 18 years of public service – including nearly ten as mayor. Sporbert is the current President of the Thompson City Council. He will handle the mayoral duties until November 15th. At that time the council will appoint a member to act as mayor until the next city election.
