Chapman resigns from Centre 2000 Board

As published in The Erin Advocate

County Councillor Ken Chapman has resigned from the Centre 2000 Management Board, where he was serving as the chairperson.

Contacted by The Advocate, Councillor Chapman declined to offer any explanation for the decision or to discuss events leading up to it.

The draft minutes of the January meeting of County Council show that councillors went into a closed session. Upon returning to the public session, Warden Chris White announced that Councillor Chapman had tendered his resignation from the Board.

With Town Councillor Barb Tocher running for the county seat in this October’s election, Councillor Chapman said he has not made a decision on whether he will seek re-election.

The Centre 2000 board administers a shared use agreement for certain areas of the facility, with representatives of the School Board and the Town, plus one representative from the county since it shares the library with the school.
