Dr. Julia Houston, who represented the Lyerly District on the Chattooga Board of Education has resigned her position.
Houston, a Republican, defeated Democrat Larry Weesner in the 2018 election. For the past several months she has been vocal in opposing a new school for students in Menlo. The Chattooga Board of Education recently voted 4-0 to move forward with plans to build a new school at Menlo. Houston was not present at the meeting.
According to Chattooga Board of Education Chairman Eddie Eslberry on Saturday:
Thursday morning myself and Mr. Hosmer received a letter of resignation via email from Dr. Julia Houston. The email reads:“ I would like to resign from my board position to be effective immediately. Julia Houston”.
The Board will take action on this item in Tuesday’s called meeting.
Eddie D. Elsberry
Chairman, Chattooga County Board of Education
