Los Osos services district's vice president steps down

Maria Kelly, vice president of the Los Osos Community Services District, has resigned.

Kelly, whose term ran through 2012, said she made the decision for “very personal reasons” and “with a heavy heart.”

“Unfortunately,” she wrote in her letter of resignation, “as I evaluate my current situation and the needs of my children, I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that I must immediately step down, since I do not believe I can provide the commitment and attention that the Board of Directors requires and that the community of Los Osos deserves.”

Kelly asked that the board “give serious consideration to appointing a current committee member to finish my term as a director.”
