Janet Wheeler resigned from her role as chairman of the selectmen Tuesday night, citing "personal attacks" as her reason for stepping down.
Selectman Stephen Dungan will become the interim chair, while the board considers Wheeler's replacement, said Town Administrator William Wrigley. Wheeler has not stepped down as selectman, he said.
At a meeting Tuesday night, Wheeler read aloud a prepared statement, saying she had become a target of constant public undermining as chair.
"It is such an unreceptive environment that just about any request from me is fodder for grievances, petitions, attacks in the local paper, and behind-the-scenes wrangling," Wheeler said in the statement.
