Members of the Green Brook Board of Education were surprised to receive the resignation of member John Sartor, which was accepted at the board's meeting Monday.
"We all were shocked and saddened by John’s decision to step down, but were all very grateful to him for the exceptional years of service that he gave our district," Superintendent Richard Labbe said. "He will be sorely missed."
Dr. Labbe said Sartor said he was resigning for personal reasons.
The board will need to appoint someone to complete the balance of Sartor's term. Anyone interested in the appointment must have lived in the district for at least one year, pass a criminal background check, be able to read and write and not have a contract with or claim against the district.
To be considered for the board, send a resume and letter of interest to Michael Colling, 132 Jefferson Ave., Green Brook, NJ 08812 by noon Nov. 30, 2012.
