Tellico Village’s new chief executive officer took the blame Feb. 27 for what he characterized as missteps during his first town hall meeting with residents.

Chet Pillsbury, who took the helm of the community late last year following the retirement of Winston Blazer, recently came under criticism for soliciting the help of state Rep. Lowell Russell, R-Vonore, before residents were made aware of pending legislation that would directly impact the Village.
