St. Michaels Town Commissioner Jaime Windon has resigned her post effective immediately.
In a statement sent Monday to the interim town manager, Windon wrote:
“For the last seven years I have enjoyed serving the town of Saint Michaels. It is both a privilege and an honor to be a commissioner, and it is a role that I strived to fulfill to the best of my ability with dedication and integrity. However, recent events, conflicts and controversies prove to be a continual challenge to my ability to maintain excellence in governance and create positive change through my position.
“It is not without regret that I have come to the decision that I can no longer serve as part of this commission, and am therefore resigning, effective immediately.
“Thank you to our dedicated public servants: the police department, public works, the office staff and all those who volunteer their time on the many boards and committees, your efforts make this town a wonderful place to live and it has been a pleasure working alongside each of you.
“Best wishes to those that are entrusted with guiding and governing our town. I look forward to finding new ways to serve Saint Michaels in the future.”
Windon’s term expires in 2022.
