Madisonville Mayor Announces New City Administrator Appointment

chuckshockleyMajor Charles “Chuck” Shockley to be appointed as City Administrative Officer and will be officially sworn into the position on Oct. 1, 2014.MADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/12/14) – After 24 years of service to the citizens of Madisonville, City Administrative Officer Mike Franklin announced that he will retire Oct. 1.

Prior to his appointment as City Administrator, Franklin served as Superintendent of the Parks and Cemetery Departments.

“I could not have found a better community to work in, a better group of elected officials to work for, or a better staff to work with, than I have experienced during my time with the city of Madisonville,” stated Franklin.

Mayor David Jackson has also announced the pending appointment of Major Charles “Chuck” Shockley as City Administrative Officer to be effective upon Franklin’s retirement.

“This announcement is bittersweet,” said Jackson. “I am reluctant to see such a dedicated city servant as Mike leave us. However, we are very fortunate to have Major Shockley available to fill the vacancy. Chuck also brings a strong background of experience in city government and dedication to the community to this position.”

Following council approval, effective July 1, Shockley will transfer from the Madisonville Police Department to work alongside Franklin at city hall until being officially sworn into the position on Oct. 1.

Major Shockley has been employed with the Madisonville Police Department since June 1990.

Shockley holds a Bachelor of Human Services degree from Murray State University, and is a graduate of the Criminal Justice Executive Development Program, Southern Police Institute at the University of Louisville as well as the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

“I am very honored to be appointed to this position and would like to thank Mayor Jackson for his support. I look forward to transferring to city hall and serving our citizens in this new capacity,” said Shockley.
