Buckhannon City Council

BUCKHANNON - During the September 1st City Council meeting comments and announcements, Mayor Robbie Skinner shared memories of Upshur County Commissioner Terry Cutright, and reminded us that we are all merely human.


"Isn't it interesting we have had some tense conversations with our friends at the County Commission we have had tense conversations amongst one another but it doesn't... really... matter. Because Brenda is going to be home tonight without Terry. Joe is going to wake up tomorrow without his dad," Sinner said.


"So, we deliberate the business of the city and our community - and it is important business - but at the end of the day, (if) we can't walk out of here, shake hands and be friends for the betterment of ourselves and each other and this community, then we need to re-examine. And I'm proud us because we as a council, we do that".


Skinner closed with some heartfelt remarks...


"I'm going to miss him. I know we're all going to miss him. But let us be mindful as we move forward that even though we might have a disagreement or two, what is really important is our health, our families, our friends, and what we do as human beings outside of here... how we carry ourselves. And Terry Cutright carried himself as a gentleman", Skinner concluded.


Terry Cutright passed away on Thursday, September 1, 2022.
