OCEAN PINES – The president of the Ocean Pines Association’s board of directors abruptly resigned from the position this week.
The association announced late Wednesday afternoon that Tom Herrick, the board’s president, had resigned from the position and that Dave Stevens, the board’s vice president, would take on the role.
In an interview Thursday morning, Herrick said the “havoc and turmoil” created by other directors prompted his resignation.
“To be perfectly frank, it’s fair for the members to know, that it’s specifically related to the conduct displayed by two sitting directors,” Herrick said. “Being president I was forced to deal with this conduct on a daily basis … It became too frustrating to continue in that role.”
Herrick, a retired New York State Police officer, was elected to serve on the board in 2015. He became president of the board in 2016.
