Harford County Board of Education member Robin Rich, who represents the North Harford area, announced moments ago at Monday night’s Board meeting that she will resign her position effective December 1.
Rich’s departure will reduce the seven-member Board of Education down to just five members (with earlier resignation of John Smilko of Joppa this summer) until the three newly-elected Board members take office July 1, 2011, or unless Governor Martin O’Malley makes interim appointments.
Rich cited work obligations in her decision to resign.
The Harford County Public School email newsletter, which was distributed at about 7:20 p.m. Monday night, described Rich’s decision as such:
Board Member R. Robin Rich relinquished her position on the Board of Education effective December 2, 2010 due to increasing professional responsibilities with her current employer, Catholic Charities.
