Citing a need to move out of state temporarily, Peninsula School Board President Jill Uddenberg has announced her resignation from the board.
In her resignation letter, Uddenberg said she planned to relocate for about a year, but that she hopes to return and become active in the Gig Harbor-area school district again.
“The reason for my resignation is due solely to a short-term relocation out of state,” Uddenberg stated in her letter. She has been a member of the board for seven years and was last elected in 2011 for a term set to expire in 2015.
The school board will take official action on Uddenberg’s resignation at its Oct. 11 meeting. The district will solicit letters of intent from residents who are interested in filling the unexpired term representing District 4.
