UPDATE: Hart district board member resigns

Paul Strickland has announced his resignation from the William S. Hart Union High School District board.

 

Longtime Hart district board member Paul Strickland announced Thursday that he is resigning from the board effective May 1.

Strickland, who was first elected to the board for the William S. Hart Union High School District in 2001, said he is resigning because he is moving to Florida to take a job as a consultant for an animated series project.

Strickland said it will be difficult to relocate from the Santa Clarita Valley, his home of nearly 30 years, but the opportunity was one he could not pass up.

“It’s kind of sad to leave everybody, but it’s just one of those things,” Strickland said. “My wife and I feel good about the move.”

Prior to serving on the Hart district board, Strickland was a trustee for the Sulphur Springs School District. He also ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination in the 38th Assembly District race last year, eventually losing to now-Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita.

Members of the Hart district board will discuss options to filling Strickland’s seat.

The board has the option of holding a special election to fill the seat or naming an appointee to serve out the remainder of Strickland’s term, which ends this November, according to district spokeswoman Gail Pinsker.

Strickland is also resigning from his seat on the Santa Clarita Arts Commission. He has been a member of since the commission was founded in 2009.

City Council members must find and vote on a candidate to fill that vacancy, according to Rick Gould, the city’s director of parks, recreation and community services. Gould said that process could take several months.
