Shaun Moran, Ashland City Councilor Resigns Effective Immediately  –  What Is Going on?

Fellow Citizens of Ashland, City Council and City Manager Lessard,
I’ve spent the last 7 years as a member of the Budget Committee and 2 years as a City Councilor trying to draw attention to the unfettered spending and the inevitable fiscal crisis which needed to be addressed for Ashlanders. Yet, even with a new City Manager there continues to be no interest or sense of urgency in addressing and solving these critical issues.

As a result, and in light of Mayor Akins recent resignation notice, effective immediately I am resigning from my position on the Ashland city council.  If I felt my continuing service on the council could benefit the community and somehow change the direction of our town, I would have remained on the council, but I think that would be ineffectual and frankly hopeless.

I want to thank the citizens of Ashland for their votes and support and wish them all the very best in the future. 

Shaun J. Moran
