Harrison Mayor Ed Wood Resigns

Harrison – In a short and blunt message on the Harrison Hot Springs Village website:

Message from Mayor Ed Wood: Please accept this as my official notice of resignation effective end of Monday June 10. I personally would like to thank both the Corporate Officer and the Chief Financial Officer for their professionalism during our time together, they have demonstrated integrity, respect, and accountability of which I hold strong to. To the members of the public, it has been an honour to be your Mayor.

Wood’s tenure has been rocky from the start will plenty of public infighting that spilled into social media.

A by-election is expected to be called soon. There is an 80 day window for that once Elections BC sets up their office in the Village.

Councilor Leo Facio is now Acting Mayor.

From the Facebook page Harrison Hot Springs News and View, a statement from Mayor Wood and RT by Counc. John Allen was posted:

2024 Facebook Mayor Ed Wood Resignation

There has been infighting between the Mayor and Councilor John Allen with regards to other councilors, much of it played out on social media. Many accusations have been made that the Province did not support the Mayor as he tried to navigate his first term. The issues were wide raging from zoning to handling the East Sector trails and the wildfire potential should the worse case scenario take place. That would include any evacuation of the Village should wildfire engage the community.

More to come.
