Richard Strauss Resigns From Region 4 Board of Education

CHESTER— Richard Strauss has resigned from the Region 4 Board of Education, leaving a vacancy through 2013 that will be filled by an appointment of the board of selectmen.

Strauss, a Republican, had already served previous terms on the Region 4 board and the board of finance when he was appointed to fill a vacancy on the board in January 2006. He was elected to a full six-year term in 2007.

Strauss had served in recent years as board treasurer. As a member of the board’s finance committee, he had worked to improve financial accounting of the district education budget that funds the operations of Valley Regional High School and John Winthrop Middle School.

The board of selectmen will appoint a replacement to serve the remainder of the unexpired term ending in November 2013. The replacement does not have to be a registered Republican.
