PORT HARDY – Coun. Stan McLennan has resigned his position just months before completing his 20th year of serving Port Hardy.

McLennan announced his resignation Tuesday night during a regular council meeting after no one seconded a motion to consider a letter from former mayor Hank Bood that recommended fellow former mayor Russ Hellberg be appointed to the Official Community Plan committee.

“I have had enough,” said McLennan who had not planned to run again when his term ends in November. “I don’t like how the mayor is leading the town and I don’t like how the administrator is helping her to do it.”

A by-election is not likely to be called as a full election will take place in the fall. For the full story on McLennan’s years of service and resignation, see Thursday’s North Island Gazette.
