In a letter submitted to the City of Elk Grove today, Elk Grove Unified School District Trustee Nancy Chaires announced her resignation as a planning commissioner. Chaires was appointed to and sworn-in to the school district's Board of Trustees on Monday night.

A 2007 appointment to the Elk Grove Planning Commission by former Elk Grove Council Member and current California Assembly Member Jim Cooper, Chaires has been the only female on the board since the city's 2000 incorporation. More recently, Charies came in second place in the race for the Elk Grove City Council's District 4 seat.

While Chaires said her appointment to the school board "combines my lifelong work in education policy with my love of public service," she noted the bittersweet nature of the resignation. "I’m thankful to the staff members - past and present - who have consistently acted with professionalism, risen to the occasion, and helped us meet the needs of residents time after time," she wrote.

In response to her resignation, the city council yesterday amended tonight's special meeting agenda to discuss a replacement appointment. The special meeting is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. and regular meeting is slated for 6 p.m.

No discussions, no application process, just appoint one day after resignation? Hopefully this is just to formalize the application process and discuss when an appointment will be made.

There is no turning back. A forced special election is still coming. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.
