Princeton CAO Rick Zerr resigns

Former administrator Bob Wilson to assume duties in the short term

Princeton CAO Rick Zerr has resigned his position, Mayor Frank Armitage told The Spotlight today.

“He has done a lot of very good work for the town and we will miss his good efforts and professionalism.”

Armitage said Zerr informed him of the decision about two weeks ago.

“He will be completing his vacation entitlements which run through January and then will be pursing other opportunities in his field…He has other opportunities. That’s the reason.”

The municipality will begin a search for Zerr’s replacement immediately, said Armitage.

In the interim Princeton has hired Zerr’s predecessor, former town CAO Bob Wilson, to take a leadership role with the administration.

“Bob did a complete career in civic administration and was the CAO for Langley. Prior to that he worked in Princeton and Kelowna.”

The Spotlight will provide more details as they are available.
