Oregon School Board president resigns

Oregon's School Board President Richard Gabel has resigned after nearly five years. Oregon's School Board President Richard Gabel has resigned after nearly five years.

OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) - Oregon city schools are looking for a new school board president. The previous president submitted his resignation at a special board meeting Thursday night.

Former President Richard Gabel had served on the Oregon School Board for about four and a half years. He said had a good run and wanted to give someone else an opportunity to serve on the board.

The decision comes a little more than halfway through Gabel's four-year term. He was chosen to fill the unexpired term of another board member in 2008 and was then elected to a term that started in January 2010.

The board accepted Gabel's resignation during a special meeting Thursday night and made it effective Friday. School board Vice President Diana Gadus now takes over as president.

Oregon's Superintendent Dr. Mike Zalar said the move was not completely unexpected. He thanked Gabel for his service during some challenging financial times.

"He's leaving the board at a time when I think there's an opportunity for the board to come together, maybe unite a little bit. We've been through some rocky times over the last several months," said Zalar.

The board has 30 days to fill the unexpired term. Anyone interested can submit an application to the Oregon city schools by June 22.
