Two Harbors city councilor resigns

The Two Harbors City Council accepted Frank McQuade's resignation from the council during the regular meeting Monday, Aug. 13.

McQuade said he was resigning due to family reasons and a desire to focus on his businesses.

"I have been super-busy getting my newest business up and running (McQuade's Pub and Grill)," McQuade told the News-Chronicle. "Also to continue to run McQuade's Spices and More as well. Making time for my kids made it an easy choice to resign as well. With all my time spent working, the little free time I have now, I like to give it to them."

His resignation was accepted unanimously.

"I would like to thank Frank for his time," President Miles Woodruff said. "I hate to see someone go from the council."

With McQuade's resignation, there is a declared vacancy on the council. Applications will be accepted for the appointment of a person to fill the vacancy. McQuade's seat is on the Nov. 6 general election ballot; the appointment will last until January.
