Bunker resigns as Town Public Information Officer

Wally Bunker, Town of Culpeper public information officer since 2008, abruptly resigned Wednesday morning.

No official reason was given for Bunker's resignation from the part-time position.

In an e-mail sent to Culpeper Times, Town Manager Kimberly Alexander wrote: Wally Bunker is no longer employed with the town. He has submitted his resignation effective immediately.

Alexander said that for the time being she will be the contact person for the media.

Reached by phone, Alexander said the position will be filled as soon as possible.

“It will be advertised internally for five days and after that it will advertised to the public,” she said.

Bunker is a retired journalist and police officer. He brought many years of experience to the position.

“He was very dedicated and his heart beat for our community,” said Mayor Chip Coleman in an e-mail. “He has been a good friend and I am saddened that he is leaving town employment. He will be missed. (His leaving) is a big loss for town government.”

Efforts to contact Bunker were unsuccessful.
