Fox resigns from Brentwood Council
Stephanie Fox, a member of Brentwood Borough Council since January 2014, resigned from the position effective May 31.
In a letter to council and the residents of Brentwood, Fox said she made a career transition that required full attention and commitment.
“As you all know, I tend to give my all to any organization I am involved with,” Fox said in her resignation letter dated May 21. “Although this decision leaves me saddened I am excited and look forward to the new direction of my service which still involves helping those in need.”
Fox was not present at the May 21 council meeting when her resignation was announced. She could not be reached for further comment by phone or email.
Fox served as council's representative on the zoning hearing board and the planning commission. In the letter, Fox said she was especially proud of Brentwood's Sidewalk Cost Sharing Program and the Anti-Bullying Ordinance, and the most recent updates of the borough's Sexual Harassment and Domestic Violence Policy.
Fox was appointed to council in 2014 to fill the vacancy created when former Councilwoman Ann Schade died.
“I would like to thank Mrs. Fox for all of the time she has given us,” Councilman Pat Carnevale said.
According George Zboyovsky, the borough manager, council has 30 days from June 1 to fill the vacancy.
In the past, council has requested letters of interest from residents and then conducted interviews during a public meeting before appointing a new council member.
