It also says, "(A Trustee) vacates the office if he or she ceases to reside in the trustee district he or she represents."
That is the LAW.
Garcia resigns as Del Mar regent
CORPUS CHRISTI — Linda Garcia resigned from her Del Mar College District 1 Board of Regents seat Wednesday, board president Chris Adler said Wednesday.
Adler said Garcia stated in her resignation letter — dated Aug. 1 — that she is pursuing a career opportunity outside of Corpus Christi that forces her to resign the seat.
District Attorney Carlos Valdez last week filed a lawsuit against Garcia seeking her removal from the seat. The suit alleged Garcia did not meet residency requirements to run for the seat and that her application for candidacy contained false information.
Adler said the board will research its options before taking action on the vacancy.
