Brominski To Resign From County Council
Luzerne County councilman Edward Brominski will resign from his seat.
“Due to circumstances beyond my control which have been the reason for my lack of attendance at meetings in 2018, and because I cannot fulfill my duties as a councilman to my satisfaction, I am advising you that my last date of public service will be Jan. 3, 2019,” Brominski wrote in an email to council.
Brominski, of Swoyersville, did not immediately return a phone call seeking further comment. He had a year left in his term.
He has been voting in council meetings by phone recently.
County council will choose a successor, said chairman Tim McGinley.
When council appointed a controller after a resignation in 2013, the council advertised the position and interviewed candidates before deciding on someone to fill the seat, McGinley said.
Because Brominski is a Democratic lawmaker, his successor must also be a Democrat.
Brominski won election to his latest term in 2015. He was also a member of the first county council, which was elected in 2011. He also previously served as a county commissioner.
