Winona Lake councilman resigns following domestic battery conviction


Peter Christos has resigned from his position on the Winona Lake Town Council.

His resignation follows sentencing on a felony domestic battery charge last week. Christos pleaded guilty to the charge, and to a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy.

Kosciusko County Republican Chairman Mike Ragan says a replacement for Christos will be selected through a caucus on August 8 at the Winona Lake Town Hall Chambers.

A statement from Ragan said the new Town Council member will be elected “by secret ballot of the majority members of the voting caucus to fill the vacancy in office”.

Those who are interested in filing the position can get Declarations of Candidacy from the Kosciusko County Clerk of the Circuit Court. Applications are due 72 hours prior to the caucus.
