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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
