Lisa D. Connell reports in the Register-Star that Attorney Cheryl A. Roberts has resigned from her elected position as Town Justice in Austerlitz. She told the paper she made the decision to step down after she learned of a possible conflict of interest with her current job as lead corporate council for the City of Hudson, although the article does not go into detail about the nature of the conflict. Town Supervisor Jeff Braley said the town is seeking resumes and hopes to have a candidate in place before training for the position begins in March. An interim appointee will serve until a special election is held to fill the remainder of the two-year position. Read the article in the Register-Star.
