County Control Board Chairman Resigns

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority Chairman Anthony Baynes resigned Monday, citing health concerns.

In a written statement, Baynes says his decision to leave before his term ends goes against his every instinct. But he says he has to do what's best for him and his family.

Baynes suffers from traumatic brain injury from previous accidents. He collapsed during a control board meeting one year ago.

The control board's executive director, Kenneth Vetter says Baynes provided outstanding leadership.

The board's vice chair Robert Glaser will take over until Governor David Paterson names someone to replace Baynes.
