The Clerk to Castletown Town Commissioners can confirm that a Press Release was yesterday received from Miss Quine, stating her intention to resign as both Chairman and a Castletown Town Commissioner.


After consideration by board members, they have accepted this as a formal notice of resignation which therefore took effect immediately upon delivery of the notice.


It is a matter of disappointment the Board that after several weeks of silence, Miss Quine has through her public press release chosen to make misleading comments about an employee of the town that the Commissioners refute in their entirety.


Nonetheless, the Board of Castletown Town Commissioners regret that Miss Quine chose to resign as a Commissioner and wish to thank her for her many years of service to the town.


It is anticipated that an election for Chairman will be held on 1st November 2021 at 18:30.


Until such time as a New Chairman is elected, the Vice Chairman Mr Ludford-Brooks will discharge all relevant duties.


A decision regarding the timing of an election to fill the casual vacancy created by Miss Quine resignation will follow. The Commissioners are mindful that an early election under the current legislation will disenfranchise any voters who can not cast a vote in person.
