Pagano resigns from Concord Council

Peter Pagano

Peter Pagano, who was elected as a councilman in Concord Township last November, resigned from Council during the Oct. 6 meeting. The resignation was effective as of midnight. Council now has 30 days to appoint a replacement.

The meeting was live-streamed with limited live attendance, but the audio was poor to almost nonexistent, so following the exchange was difficult. However, Co-Vice President John Crossan gave a brief personal statement on the matter when contacted the next morning.

He said Pagano resigned for personal reasons and referred to him as a “pillar of the community” who served the township with “compassion and candor” during his 10 months in office.

“His strong leadership helped Concord navigate through the pandemic response as he sought the health of our citizens and businesses, recognizing that the health of our community must be looked at holistically. While I am extremely sad to see Pete step down from his role on Council, I am confident that he’ll continue to serve Concord in other ways as a leader in our community,” Crossan said.
