Eric Spoonmore, who sits on the Monroe County Council, announced his resignation from the county’s legislative body Monday. His resignation is effective at the end of the month.
He will leave to become the new President and CEO of The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, according to a press release. He will start in that role in December.
Spoonmore announced earlier this year that he would not run for reelection in 2022. His district represents almost half of the Bloomington city limits, covering the west side of the city.
“It is an extraordinary honor to have been selected as the next President and CEO of the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce,” Spoonmore said in the press release. “I am excited to begin this next phase of service in my career, and I look forward to working with the Chamber Board, our talented staff, and all our existing and future members to build upon the myriad successes achieved throughout our impressive 106-year history.”
