KTAB first reported last week Colorado City manager Pete Kampfer is leaving for a new job in Raton, New Mexico.
When local and national media descended upon Colorado City early last year, Kampfer stepped in to address them. Since the media frenzy surrounding the case has died down, he has mostly relinquished his spokesperson duties to the Colorado City police chief.
"I'm aware of what's going on. Not all of the details, but I'm aware of what's going on. I talk with the chief on a regular basis," he said.
Kampfer will leave Texas to become the city manager of Raton, New Mexico in less than two weeks. He said while he's excited for his new venture, leaving so many questions surrounding the Dunn case unanswered is a concern for him.
"Of course, there are a lot of unknowns. You don't want any more missing children or people in general," Kampfer said.
Kampfer said he's been working with other community officials to address some of those concerns, and they'll continue to do so after he leaves.
"In the end, that's still an unknown and you'd like to have that resolved. We're still working to make it a safer place," he said.
Belinda Blassingame, a municipal court judge in Colorado City, will take over as the interim city manager. Kampfer's resignation is effective February 20th.
