“I am unable to provide the level of commitment required to serve this community as director of the CSD," she wrote in a Sept. 18 letter to the district. “I feel I will better serve my community by participating in the issues but not serving on the board.” The resignation was effective immediately, the letter said.
CSD President Ray Tetreault said the board was grateful for her service to the town.
“She’s (Murphy-Teixeira) served the community well and we wish her nothing but the best,” he said.
The CSD Board has 90 days to appoint a replacement director to serve out the remainder of Murphy-Teixeira’s term, which expires in December, 2010.
Murphy-Teixeira has been on the CSD board since 2004, and served as the board’s first female president in 2008.
