Councillors Role Post: resigning from committee membership

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

For immediate release


Greenwich, NS


Yesterday, July 16 I gave immediate notice to Warden Brothers, Members of the Nominating Committee and Councillors that I was resigning my membership effective immediately from all committee appointments.


My reason is to reduce risk to these organizations that my membership could create. The degree of personal bashing at council of councillors with different opinions to the majority appears to know no bounds. 


While I have resigned from all committees that I was assigned to by the nomination committee, I plan to attend the meetings as an observer.


Meanwhile, it is my opinion that the groups  I did serve on: Kings Transit Authority; the Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre, and the Lake Monitoring Committee; are better protected from any possible retribution by the voluntary removal of me as a member. 


This will create the opportunity for councillors who are ready to challenge my role and obligations as a municipal councillor to step up. 


I will be in my seat at regular council meetings and Committee of the Whole meetings as well as  special council meetings if I am available upon the usual short notice provided for these.  


As noted, I will be at the board meetings listening as an observer  (member of the public). This will help prepare me for decisions at council. 


I will also continue to be available to listen and help these organizations or the councillors that step into the vacancies this sad state of affairs county leadership has created.
