Granville Co. Commissioner Quits After One Month

Posted December 9, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— A Granville County commissioner has resigned after less than a month on the job. Robert Strother, Junior stepped down last week.

Strother was arrested for assaulting his wife last month, just one day before he was sworn in.

His wife later dropped the charges against him, but that didn't quiet the controversy. Strother finally resigned at the request of the current commissioners.
