FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Wayne Township Trustee Richard A. Stevenson, Sr. announced he will be retiring from office.

Stevenson, who is serving in his fourth term, first took office in 2007.

The 73-year-old trustee is finishing the first-year of a four year term.

Stevenson doesn't know when his last day will be, but is beginning the process to retire as an elected official.

"One politician told me years ago, if I wanted to, I could be the trustee all my life. I never thought of them having to roll me out of the Wayne Township Trustee Office," Stevenson said.

Chief Deputy Trustee Austin Knox will serve as the interim trustee.

The Allen County Democratic Party will hold a caucus to fill the remainder of Stevenson's term.
