In a move that surpised many Ron Trimper, the longtime councillor for district 11, resigned from county council on Aug. 20.
In a move that surprised many, Ron Trimper, district 11, has announced his resignation from county council effective Aug. 31. Trimper served on Annapolis County Municipal Council for the past 13 years. He said he was leaving for personal reasons.
“It has been an honour to serve the residents of district 11 and Annapolis County over the past 13 years,” said Councillor Trimper. “I would like to say a heart-felt thank you to all those who supported me during these years. My resignation was not made without considerable thought. I just felt now was the right time to end this chapter and focus more on my personal life.”
Council accepted Councillor Trimper’s resignation with regret and wished him all the best in the future during the regular session of Municipal Council on August 20th.
“He is an excellent councillor who has always served the people of Annapolis County with respect and dignity,” said Warden Reg Ritchie. “Municipal council and the residents of district 11 will surely miss his kindness and exemplary leadership.”
Council will be presented with options at the Sept. 10 meeting of the Committee of the Whole and could that time set a date for a special election.
