Mizgorski resigns as Shaler commissioner to serve as state representative
Lori Mizgorski has resigned as Shaler commissioner to replace state Rep. Hal English in the 30th District.
David Shutter, board of commissioners’ president, read her resignation letter during a Dec. 11 meeting, which he said he had received earlier that day.
“It’s been an honor and privilege to serve the residents of Shaler Township the past nine years in commission of the Second Ward, working side-by-side with the board members and talented staff. I have loved every day that I have served our community. Although the challenges have been many, I have found the experience to be rewarding and worth every sacrifice that I have made to fulfill my duties,” she wrote.
Her resignation is effective Dec. 31 when she will become a state representative.
Mizgorski, a Republican, is English’s chief of staff. He hired her five years ago.
“I want to thank everyone, staff and fellow commissioners for all of your support over these years. It really has been a tremendous experience and you’ve all been a steady, strong presence in my life. Thank you for that,” Mizgorski said.
“Thank you for your service,” Commissioner James Boyle said. “I enjoyed working with you and I look forward to continuing working with you at the state.”
The board has yet to announce who will fill Mizgorski’s seat.
