Berrien County Commissioner Invoice Chickering isn’t searching for reelection. He represents the fifth district, which incorporates town of St. Joseph, two precincts in St. Joseph Township, and the village of Shoreham. He instructed his fellow commissioners throughout Thursday’s digital assembly he’s appreciated working with them.
“It has all the time been and can proceed to be a privilege to serve out my time period right here in 2020,” Chickering mentioned. “As everyone knows, we’ve received important challenges forward of us this 12 months, rather more than we’ve in all probability had prior to now.”
Chickering mentioned he’ll proceed to serve by the remainder of the 12 months. He didn’t say why he’s stepping down. Board Chair Mac Elliot mentioned Chickering’s presence might be missed.
