Camden — Lynda Chilton announced June 7 she is resigning from her position as vice chairman on the school board and dropping out of the race for re-election because she has been hired to work for the school district.

Chilton will serve as an executive assistant in the school district’s central office. She learned June 6 that she had been selected for the position.

"I am super excited to be a part of the team and still work on educational issues, but in a new support roll," she said.

Chilton, who has served on the SAD 28 School Board for five years, had been running for re-election against challenger Patrick McCafferty.

She informed the town of Camden that she is resigning from her seat on the school board and no longer pursuing re-election.

Because of the timing, her name will still appear on the ballot next week, but she is no longer eligible to hold that office.
