Cultural Council member and Katama Airport commissioner resign


Edgartown selectmen accepted two letters of resignation from town volunteers at a meeting Monday.

The first letter was from Lori Stone, who resigned from the Martha’s Vineyard Cultural Council. Stone said in her letter that she “appreciated having the opportunity to serve such a worthy endeavor, both for the town residents, and the Island.”

Stone suggested Lisa Sherman, director of the Edgartown library, as a worthy candidate for the position. “She is ready to take the position immediately following approval,” Sherman wrote in the letter.

Chairman Michael Donaroma said the town will still advertise for the newly vacant position.

The second letter of resignation was from James Craig of the Katama Airport commission: “While I have enjoyed representing the airport’s interest over the years, the demand of the position has increased of late. I feel that work and family obligations will prevent me from giving the commission the necessary attention.”

Selectmen also renewed a 10-year lease agreement with the Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank for the Quammox Road preserve. The land was acquired by the town during a vote at town meeting in 1952.

A request from the Edgartown Firemen’s Association for a one-day wine and malt liquor license, to be used on Nov. 1 from 6 to 8 pm, was accepted by selectmen.
