Seven resign from Millbrook Chamber board

Posted by: Sally Pitts - bio | email

MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) - Pick up a local paper and the headlines jump out: "Questions remain over chamber's bank accounts"- "Chamber board members call it quits."

Seven of the 12 members turned in letters of resignation. Ann Harper, Willie Mae Duncan, Chris Perry, David Greer, Michael Gay, Jon Foshee, and Stuart Peters resigned. Little is being said about why they stepped down, but Chamber President Dan Power gave WSFA 12 News a brief response saying, "There is tension. We are all volunteers and it's taking up way too much time."

WSFA 12 News also attempted to get comments from each of the former members. Three did speak to us over the phone giving only limited details about their resignations. Perry, a local pastor, said he felt he could support the chamber and city in better way. Harper said she's still willing to try to work out the issues. Greer says he didn't have the time it would take to work out all the issues. He also said he blames the problems on a lack of communication between the city and chamber. and misconceptions - something power agrees with. "better communications could have helped," he said.

Millbrook Mayor Al Kelley declined to comment about the resignations.
