Corinne Scott announces resignation from Kitimat council

Councillor Corinne Scott has cited personal reasons for why she's leaving council.

Corinne Scott said changing circumstances has compelled her to resign from Kitimat Council, effective immediately.

“I had informed my supporters a number of months ago that I was not going to seek re-election next fall,” said Scott at last night’s special council meeting. “”Circumstances change, sometimes too quickly, when one has to take stock of where, as individuals, we stand and what we consider as precedence in our lives. Personal circumstances have made a major change in mine and I feel it’s important for me to devote more time to my family and friends.”

Scott did not elaborate on what circumstances have changed for her.

As this announcement has come this far in the year, a by-election will not be called to fill the seat, as the general municipal election will take place in November, only six months away.

Scott said she and her partner will continue to look forward to retiring in Kitimat and participating in the community.
