Hancock Resigns From Board



Tamarah Hancock resigned from the Enumclaw School District Board of Directors effective immediately.  In a letter written to the other four board members, Hancock states:

“I just discovered that our home address falls within Director District #1 service area, not Director District #2.  We live at the end of a dirt road that roughly parallels SR 410 for about a mile, just to the north near the turn off for Mud Mountain Dam road.  The boundary for Service Area #2 does not go north of SR 410 until it meets Twin Creek, which is farther east along SR 410 than our dirt road.

Please accept my sincerest apologies for this error, and consider this letter, in addition to an apology, one of immediate withdrawal and resignation from the Board.

The Board of Directors are now seeking applicants for Director District #2.  Below is a timeline and process.
