Town­ship com­mis­sioner re­signs due to re­lo­ca­tion

South Fayette com­mis­sion­ers will have to de­ter­mine how best to ad­dress a va­cant seat af­ter re­ceiv­ing a let­ter of res­ig­na­tion from Com­mis­sioner Jes­sica Cardillo.

Town­ship man­ager Ryan Eg­gle­ston re­ceived a let­ter dated Oct. 2 from Ms. Cardillo, cit­ing re­lo­ca­tion as her rea­son for res­ig­na­tion.

Ms. Cardillo said in a phone in­ter­view she moved out of South Fayette in early Oc­to­ber and still lives lo­cally, but she did not dis­close her cur­rent place of res­i­dence. She had no other com­ment.

She wrote in her let­ter, “It has been my plea­sure to serve the com­mu­nity.”

Ms. Cardillo was sworn into of­fice in 2014. Her term was due to end this year; she was not seek­ing re-elec­tion.

Com­mis­sion­ers will have to de­ter­mine whether to leave the seat va­cant or ap­point some­one in the in­terim. “From a tim­ing stand­point, it is not clear how the com­mis­sion­ers will move for­ward,” Mr. Eg­gle­ston said.

Can­di­dates Re­becca Sray, a Demo­crat, and Kelly Fritz, a Re­pub­li­can, are on the Novem­ber ticket.

Com­mis­sion­ers are ex­pected to vote to ac­cept Ms. Cardillo’s res­ig­na­tion at a meet­ing on Wed­nes­day.
