Tisbury select board member Larry Gomez, who suffered a stroke earlier this year, has stepped down from his seat effective Oct. 1.

“Due to health issues, I hereby offer my resignation,” Mr. Gomez wrote in a letter to the town, which was accepted at Wednesday night’s select board meeting.

Long active in town affairs, Mr. Gomez served on the finance and advisory committee before being elected to the select board in 2015. Mr. Gomez ran again for the board in 2020, unseating incumbent Melina Loberg.

“He’ll be sorely missed for his leadership,” town administrator Jay Grande said.

No plan has yet been made to fill Mr. Gomez’s seat, Mr. Grande said.

Also Wednesday, the select board accepted the resignation of waterworks superintendent Christopher Cassidy.

“We’re going to miss having him around,” Mr. Grande said.

Among other business, the Tisbury select board closed, without action, a hearing on an application for a harbor use permit from the pilot of a privately-owned sea plane. Because the sea plane is not a commercial operation, Mr. Grande said, the town waterways committee advised the select board that a use permit is not required.
