Town councilor resigns, pursues mayoral position

Former town councillor and deputy mayor Tony Wadsworth gave his resignation at town council's Aug. 26 meeting.

Former town councillor and deputy mayor Tony Wadsworth gave his resignation during an in-camera executive session held following town council’s Aug. 26 meeting.

The resignation — which was accepted by council, Coun. Pat Garrett was opposed — was effective immediately and the news was made public when council came out of in-camera to continue the meeting.

“In explanation, I have determined that I shall wish to run in the forthcoming by-election for the recently vacated position of mayor of Millet,” Wadsworth stated in a letter he gave to council.

The by-election is slated for Oct. 26 with nomination day set for Sept. 25 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Assistant CAO Lisa Schoening is the appointed returning officer.

Following Wadsworth’s resignation council was once again in need of a deputy mayor. Coun. Carol Sadoroszney was nominated and accepted for the position until council holds its organizational meeting in October.
