Council members ask Halfmoon Town Supervisor to resign

HALFMOON, N.Y. -- With less than two months to go before the November general election, four Halfmoon council members released a letter calling their town supervisor, Mindy Wormuth, an ineffective leader and asking her to resign.

The letter comes amidst an FBI investigation, according to board member John Wasielewski.

Council members say even though Wormuth has not been charged with anything, they have a pressing matter that cannot wait and needs to be dealt with quickly.

In the letter to the supervisor, the council members write "Halfmoon has been faced with a series of questions arising from potential conflicts of interest regarding your personal business interests to questions regarding the town budget."

But some town residents, like John Yagielski, say there are not enough facts to call for a resignation yet.

"I don't know, a little premature if you want to find out the facts," he said.  

In a statement to NEWS10 Wormuth wrote, "I have neither been charged with nor convicted of any offense." She goes on to say, "I intend to continue to do the job I was elected to do in the position I was elected to until my term expires."
