Glenn Taylor Resigns as Mayor of Hinton

Posted on by Richard Einarson

Last night at the first Town of Hinton Council meeting of 2012 Mayor Glenn Taylor tendered his resignation as Mayor of Hinton.

“As  you  know,  in  May  of  2011  I  was  elected  as  the  Leader  of  the  Alberta  Party,  our  citizen’s  movement   for democratic renewal. At that time I intended to continue to serve both the community of Hinton and the Alberta Party to the best of my ability, for as long  as  it  made  sense,”  stated  Taylor  in  his   announcement.

“From the outset of my public service I committed to serving with honesty, integrity, transparency, accountability and with a commitment to fiscal responsibility. I hope that I have demonstrated all of those attributes during my term of service to our community.

As we begin a new year in 2012, with a provincial election looming on the immediate horizon, that I intend to contest, and now with the need for a municipal by-election to take place prior to the end of February,  I  believe  that  it  is  in  our  community’s  best  interest,  both  from  a  fiscally  prudent  perspective and one of transparency - as well as being a matter of personal integrity - that I tender my resignation as Mayor of Hinton.”

Councillor Stephen Mitchell announced his resignation from Hinton Council on December 20, 2011 triggering the requirement for a by-election in Hinton to take place on February 27, 2012.
