Taiwan Water Corp (Taiwater) chairman Kuo Chun-ming (郭俊銘) yesterday resigned after
a report that he was having an extramarital affair.
“Due to today’s news report on my actions, which some people might find questionable, and to avoid causing problems for the government, including damaging Taiwater’s image, I hereby resign from my chairman position effective today,” Kuo said in a statement.
The Chinese-language Next Magazine reported that Kuo over the past month took a woman surnamed Yang (楊) to a motel in Taichung on three separate occasions, and published their photographs.
Yang is a deputy manager responsible for sales at a Taichung radio station and her husband, surnamed Huang (黃), is the station’s manager, the magazine said.
