Griffin-Hall resigns from Parks Board

South Kitsap Parks and Recreation Commissioner Patrick Griffin-Hall has resigned from the Board after serving a little more than two months of his four-year term.

Elected last November to the board’s third position, a term ending in December of 2009, Griffin-Hall joined with newcomers Warren Collver and Chair Ron Flerx, as well as re-elected Boardmember Margie Rees and former Board Chair Larry Walker, trying to solve the problems of the oft-afflicted South Kitsap Community Park.

Griffin-Hall resigned via e-mail on March 7. He could not be reached for comment as of Monday afternoon.

“It’s one of the problems we’ve had,” said Walker, now vice chair of the board, in regard to the retention of commissioners.

According to Walker, the board is surprised by Griffin-Hall’s announcement.

“We paid to elect him and now we will pay to replace him” in the 2007 election (two years earlier than planned), Walker said.

Walker said the board is now accepting applications for appointment as Griffin-Hall’s replacement.

Applicants must reside within South Kitsap and applications will be accepted through March 31.

Walker said the board will review the applications, interview applicants and appoint someone who will be officially elected, along with three other commissioners in 2007.
