Russ Fortier stepped down from his post as reeve of the Township of Emo last week, citing “personal reasons” for the sudden departure.
“I’m tired, worn out,” he said Friday morning. “It’s time to take care of myself.”
He said although it was a difficult decision, he gave notice to Couns. Ken Fisher, Gary Judson, Harri Sheloff, and Ed Carlson last Wednesday.
