Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker died overnight. Known for his soft-spoken manner, Walker's method was to lead through consensus building.
"Coming in I didn’t have a personal agenda," Walker said of the one-year anniversary of taking office. "The agenda I came in with is I wanted to change attitudes."
The mayor was 54 and the cause of death is pending, according to a statement from Hardin Memorial Hospital.
