Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew has announced the resignation of Eudora Township Trustee Mark Grosdidier. The resignation is effective immediately. Grosdidier was unopposed when he ran for the seat in November 2012.
“I think the time commitment to the position was more than he anticipated,” Township Treasurer and cousin Glenn Grosdidier told us. Grosdidier had no further information as to why the resignation came now.
Eudorareporter.com had recently learned and Treasurer Glenn Grosdidier did confirm that Mark Grosdidier had not attended any Township Board meetings since his election in 2012.
We attempted to contact Mark Grosdidier about the resignation and was not able to reach him at press time.
According to Shew, the vacancy will be filled by appointment of the Douglas County Commissioners. The person appointed will fill the remainder of the unexpired term, which will be until the November 2016 General Election.
Glenn Grosdidier stated he learned of the resignation via a phone message from the Douglas County Administrator and had no word on who or when an appointment to fill the vacancy would be made.
