On Wednesday, Huber said that he would not miss any council meetings and he checked with the city clerk before accepting the job in Jackson.

Johnathan Hunt, the owner of Grizzly Country Wildlife Adventures, said he was not aware Huber was a council member in Chico. 

Hunt hired Huber because he thought Huber would be a good fit for his company because of his love for nature. 

Since offering Huber the job, Hunt said his company has received negative reviews and scathing emails. He said his business is family owned and he has nine employees, as this has impacted his business and employees. 

Huber’s statement is below:

“Due to the persistent harassment of my summer employer I have resigned from the company to save them from additional harm to their business. I have no additional comment. Thank you, Scott Huber.”
