Clearwater Executive Director Resigns
The executive director of the Beacon-based non-profit Hudson River Sloop Clearwater has announced his resignation. Sloop Clearwater Executive Director Peter Gross has stepped down, citing, quote “significant differences between his and the organization’s vision to the path to building a stronger future for Clearwater and dealing with the organization’s long-standing financial and structural challenges.” Gross served as executive director since May of 2014. The move comes nearly one week after Clearwater’s announcement that its annual June festival would be cancelled, namely because of a costly renovation of the sloop Clearwater. And because of this restoration, Clearwater is placing on hold the search for a new executive director.
