In a letter to council and the residents of Brentwood, council member StephanieFox said she made a career transition that required full attention and commitment.

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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
