PERRYSBURG – The acting president of the Perrysburg Heights Community Association resigned from the board of trustees Tuesday night.
Former Vice President Steven Kramer, a board member since 2009, confirmed his resignation Wednesday but declined to comment on what contributed to the decision, deferring to board member Jesse Spier, who he said will take over the role of speaking for the board.
A professor emeritus from the University of Toledo, Kramer volunteered as a math and science tutor at the Perrysburg Heights Community Center, served on the festival committee and was project director of the community garden, according to his biography on the PCHA website. He became vice president in June, 2012.
Spier, who joined the board in September, 2012, said he believed Kramer’s resignation was for personal reasons, declining to elaborate further.
“He read a letter and said he appreciates his time on the board,” Spier said. “He still wants to help out, but he doesn’t feel being on the board is the right thing for him at this time.”
Kramer and other board members were the subject of community criticism during an emotionally-charged public forum on Sunday.
Spier said Tuesday’s meeting was conducted in executive session and confirmed members of the community were not permitted to participate in the meeting. Some residents have claimed the board has operated in violation of its bylaws and has not adhered to open meeting laws, though it’s unclear whether the organization is bound by them.
Spier said the group plans to eventually conduct open board meetings, but executive session was required Tuesday in order to conduct business “in a civil manner.”
