Council dismisses town administrator
by Tom Chillemi
The Urbanna Town Council terminated Brandon Waddell’s contract as Urbanna Town Administrator on Monday night following a closed session.
The vote was unanimous with the exception of council member Barbara Hartley, who recused herself and abstained from voting.
Waddell, who has been on the job for less than a month, was not given a reason for being dismissed.
On Tuesday, Waddell called the Sentinel. He commented, “I love the Town of Urbanna. The job was the opportunity of a lifetime and I gave them everything I had. I’m sorry it didn’t work out and I have no hard feelings toward council.”
Waddell said he enjoyed meeting the people in town.
