Somerset County official resigns

Morning Sentinel staff report

SKOWHEGAN – Somerset County Administrator Larry Post has abruptly resigned after a closed meeting with county commissioners.

Commissioner Lynda Quinn said Post, 59, resigned Tuesday because of "different management styles."

Post, who lives in St. Albans, said his resignation was a "mutual parting."

Post was escorted by sheriff's deputies out of the county courthouse, where his office was located, but Quinn said that is standard procedure.

Post got a four-year contract with a $60,000 salary, with the county paying 100 percent of his health insurance. He also got five weeks of paid vacation.
