The city of Stephenville will begin the process of finding a new recreation superintendent after terminating Mark Willingham on Friday.

Willingham left a lengthy message with the E-T after his termination Friday, stating that he had lost his job because “no one liked him.” 

A call to Willingham later that morning was not returned.

Deputy City Administrator Jeremy Allen confirmed that Willingham was no longer with the city but declined to give specifics.

Willingham took to social media hours after his termination to talk about the situation, saying he lost his job because he failed to give certain people “special treatment.”
