Fire Chief resigns in Glen Ellyn

The Daily Herald has an article about the resignation of Glen Ellyn Fire Chief Pete Campbell:

 A 31-year veteran of Glen Ellyn’s volunteer fire department has resigned as chief without explanation.

Pete Campbell, who served as chief of the Glen Ellyn Volunteer Fire Company since April 2011, recently told members of the company and village officials he was stepping down.

Campbell is the 10th chief in the company’s 105-year history. He took over for Scott Raffensparger, who was chief for 10 years.

Lt. Craig Eldridge, the fire company’s spokesman, said Campbell “decided to resign and put in a letter to retire.” Campbell has been working with interim Chief Jeff Buccola on a transition, Eldridge said.

The 62-member fire company holds elections for the chief and assistant chief positions every April. Since Campbell is leaving before his term ends, a special election has been scheduled.
