WINTHROP — James Lattin, town councilor since January 2010, resigned this week without explanation.

The Town Council is expected to set a date for a special election for the seat at Monday’s regular meeting. The council will meet in at 7 p.m. at the Town Office.

His seat is up for re-election this year.

Lattin submitted a brief resignation letter Tuesday to Council Chairman Kevin Cookson.

“I regret to inform you of my intent to resign my position as councilor, town of Winthrop, effective immediately,” Lattin wrote. He thanked Cookson and sent his best wishes to the other councilors.

Lattin, who was not present at the most recent council meeting in February, did not respond to requests for comment on Friday.

Lattin is a financial manager and controller for Fisher Engineering in Rockland. He has lived in Winthrop for 14 years.

Councilors on Monday also will hold a public hearing on central services and code enforcement fees and hold a joint public hearing with the Winthrop Planning Board on a proposed new zoning district.
