Briggs resigns from post


Sherman E. Briggs Jr., who in May was found to have violated the state’s conflict-of-interest law and fined $7,500, has resigned from the Marion Conservation Commission. In a letter to selectmen dated June 4, Briggs thanked them “for allowing me to faithfully serve for the past 20 years, the residents of the town of Marion,” and that “without the support of the present board of selectmen I can no longer fill that role.” Briggs was also a Planning Board member, but lost that seat in the May 17 election. Briggs was fined by the state Ethics Commission after admitting to voting two years ago as a Conservation Commission member to approve Tabor Academy’s request to install salt water tanks at the school. His company, Briggs Excavating, performed work on the job.
