Mark Stobbe no longer heads Sask. Craft Council
While the Saskatchewan Craft Council says Mark Stobbe has contributed a
great deal to the success of the organization over the years, the two have
decided to part ways.
For five and a half years, the former political advisor to Roy Romanow was the council's executive director, but he took a six month leave of absence during his trial for second degree murder. Back at the end of March, Stobbe was acquitted of his wife, Beverly Rowbotham's, murder in Manitoba.
At the time of the verdict, the council said not no discussions or decisions were made regarding Stobbe's return in July, which marked the end of the six months.
Now Rodney Peterson, the craft council's chair, says the council and Stobbe mutually agreed to go their separate ways at the end of the leave. Peterson won't say who initiated the talks.
