TEMPLETON, Mass. (AP) — A member of the select board in a central Massachusetts town says she's resigning because she has been "bullied" by other members of the board.
Virginia Wilder said in her resignation letter from Templeton's board Monday she has been spit at, cursed at, had chairs thrown at her and has been the subject of lies and ridicule since elected to the five-member board in February 2012.
The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/YVNjsD ) reports that in her letter to the town administrator, Wilder singled out the board's vice chairman, saying he pushed her over the edge by calling her "stupid" in an online post and threatened to file open meeting law complaints against her.
"You win, big man," she wrote. "You have bullied me to the max.
Templeton has about 8,000 residents.
