Egger to vacate town council seat after marriage, move

The Warren Sentinel

FRONT ROYAL — Councilwoman B'bhinn Egger broke some bad news to her constituents Monday night, but she had a good reason.

Egger will resign effective July 1 because she plans to get married in June and move out of Front Royal.

"I will have to resign my seat after I get married and move, but I wanted to let everybody know Iíll be here for the next three months working for my constituents to the best of my ability, as I hope that I've done for the past couple of years," she said.

She thanked her constituents and supporters who backed her since she started on Council in 2015.

"When I ran for this seat, I actually didn't even know my fiance' yet, so I had every intention on finishing my ... four-year term, but life happens,î she said. ìItís an exciting time for me, but Iím also excited for the town because I do think we are really on the right track and thereís a lot of good things ahead.î

After she resigns, Council will have 45 days to appoint her replacement or schedule a special election. If it does neither in that time, a Warren County Circuit Court judge could step in and appoint a replacement.

Egger's term ends Dec. 31, 2018.
