Milton Township Trustee Chris Edwards has resigned from his post.
The news comes after a heated Milton Township meeting last week where trustees of an employee who was rumored to be using a government-issued phone to do campaign work. Due to a "lack of probable cause," the Ethics Commission decided not to pursue the case.
Shortly after Tuesday's meeting, Chris Edwards sent a letter of resignation to his colleagues on the board.
"My decision to resign was not easy, but I believe it is best for me and my family at this time," Edwards writes in the letter, obtained by Patch.
Edwards confirmed he was resigning in a phone call but did not comment further.
