Bruce Eagleson resigned from the LaGrange Town Board Monday evening. Eagleson gave his verbal resignation at the end of the meeting and agreed that he would be submitting a written resignation that would be effective June 30.
Eagleson’s term was set to expire at the end of the year and he had not filed a petition for nomination in the May primary election. Edna Bowser has filed a nomination petition since the primary election and will appear on the November general election ballot for Eagleson’s seat, according to Mark Eagleson, county Democratic chairman.
It is expected that a Democratic Caucus will be held to name a replacement for Bruce Eagleson in the near future. Bowser is expected to file for that position.
