Sandgate Select Board Chair Resigns

The town of Sandgate's Select Board Chairman Robert Wise resigned unexpectedly at the board's meeting this week. Wise later said he made the decision because he was "frustrated." He said quote -- "I decided to step down because I was unable do for the town the things I wanted to do," Judy Boehlert, one of four other Select Board members said Wise's decision came at the end of the meeting and left the Select Board with decisions to make about replacing him. The Select Board's Vice Chairman Don Trachte was elected unanimously to the position of chairman. But Boehlert said no decision had been made about a new vice chairman, a position the Sandgate Select Board only enacted this year.
