WATERVLIET — Watervliet Township trustees voted Monday evening to accept the mid-term resignation of board member Matthew Clay, then promptly named retired educator Glen Giannetti to succeed Clay.

In an Oct. 21 letter made public on Monday, Clay – who won election to the township board in 2016 – told Township Clerk Patt Bambrick that “I must resign as a trustee of the Watervliet Township Board, effective immediately.”
