Corinne Scott Resigns from Council

CORINNE SCOTT RESIGNS FROM DISTRICT OF KITIMAT COUNCIL

During last night’s Special Meeting, Councillor Corinne Scott announced her resignation effective immediately.

In a statement to Mayor and Council, Scott cited personal reasons for her decision.

“I feel I have accomplished what was asked of me by those individuals in the community that supported me first in the by-election and again in the general election in 2011. I’m grateful for the support I received from the residents, business, industry and staff of the District of Kitimat, and I’m proud of the road the municipality is on towards even bigger and better things.

“I want to assure you of my continued support in your endeavors, and look forward to the coming years of development.”

“I ask that you respect that my decision is personal and has no bearing on anyone either on staff or on Council.”

Scott was first elected to Kitimat Council in a by-election on November 20, 2010. She was re-elected in the last general election on November 19, 2011.

“Corinne and her husband Ian moved to Kitimat in 2007 and Kitimat was their first choice of a perfect retirement community,” said Mayor Joanne Monaghan. “We have seen many positive changes in Kitimat during Councillor Scott’s term and we accept her resignation with regret.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all of her contributions to Council and the many committees and commissions she has been part of, and wish her and Ian all the best for the future.”
