FORMER LONGTIME Terrace city councillor David D. Hull has resigned form his position as executive director of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce.

The move came after the chamber’s board of directors, on June 23, requested, received and accepted the resignation.

Hull, 52, had been suspended with pay from his full-time position at the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce June 3 after being charged with assault.

On May 28, Hull was arrested at an apartment building in central Abbotsford after police received a report from a 35-year-old woman that an assault had taken place.

Abbotsford police said the call came in at about 3 a.m., and Hull was arrested 90 minutes later. An assault charge was approved by Crown counsel on May 31.

Hull had been with the chamber for the past six years. No replacement was named.

Hull sat on Terrace city council in 1989 for one year and then continuously from 1994 to 2005.

In May 2005, Hull resigned  from council here to take the position of chief executive officer for the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce.
