Shawn Skager

Hillsboro City Commissioner Shawn Skager plans to resign from the commission this summer.

The sergeant with the Traill County Sheriff’s Department and his wife, Kathy, intend to leave Hillsboro and return to the Bismarck-Mandan area where they grew up and met in high school.

“I’ve been chasing her for 30 years and she wants to go back home, so that’s where I am going,” Skager said in an interview Tuesday.

“It’s bittersweet that I am leaving Hillsboro but it’s all good because I’m leaving for the right reasons.”
