Hunt resigns from Carlynton School Board

The Carlynton School Board is looking for someone to fill a vacancy after member Carl Hunt resigned last week, effective July 31.

Hunt resigned at the July 14 board meeting. He said he will be moving out of the district.

“Obviously, this was something unforeseen last year, when I ran for office,” he said.

Hunt had been on the board since he was sworn in in January after winning the seat in the November general election. Four candidates ran and were elected to fill four open seats.

Hunt said he has enjoyed his time on the school board.

“Working with (Superintendent Gary Peiffer) and the rest of the school board has been a wonderful experience,” he said. “They're an extremely professional group of people. They're truly looking after the best interests of the district.”

Board President David Roussos said Hunt was a very involved parent and community member prior to his board tenure.

“Really, his time on the board was just his latest commitment to the district,” Roussos said. “In a short time, he's really been a very, very critical part of what we've been doing.”

He invited any interested residents to apply by July 31. Applicants should submit a letter of application that includes qualifications and the reasons for their interest. A resume is requested but not required.

Applicants must be registered to vote and have lived in the district for at least one year as of Aug. 4. Interviews will be held Aug. 4. Send applications to Roussos at Carlynton School District, 435 Kings Highway, Carnegie, PA 15106.

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.
