This is a formal notification that I am resigning my position as Vice President of the Teacher’s Local 37 Union. I understand that by doing so I will lose all the rights and privileges that come with being an officer with the union. Besides leaving the position, I will be resigning my membership as well.
This is not a decision I make lightly. But as you know I have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is apparently in its late stages and I am looking at aggressive treatment that could include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
To say this situation has given me reason to reprioritize would be an understatement. I have devoted the last 20 years of my life to the educational system. That includes eight years acting as an advocate with the union. While I have no regrets, I have made personal sacrifices that I can no longer say were for the best of everyone, especially my family.
So as I approach this new challenge, I want to revisit old ones. But that means I make one more sacrifice and that has to be the time I have devoted to the union.
I hope everyone understands. I wish Local 37 the best in their ventures.
