Eagleson resigns from town board

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.
