I’m resigning, to volunteer

To the Editor:
With much thought, I have decided to end my post as Berne councilwoman, effective Sept. 20, 2021.

Today, in our changing world, I feel politics in our town, state, and federal levels are becoming very challenging. We all have a common goal, though parties are taking different pathways to get to what is best for all of us.

Whether it’s social media or face-to-face discussions, the goals are put aside and progress is delayed. I prefer to get things done. When someone is elected to office, let them do their job. Support and encourage each other.

This will now be my second time resigning from the board. I feel I can do more for my town on a volunteer basis.

Again, this is a hard world, and government to me is looked upon as a lost privilege in this country.

Thank you all for the opportunity and support. I’m looking forward to volunteering for our town and making progress for its future.
