School Board Resignation Could Impact City Council

The resignation of a Westbrook School Committee member on Tuesday is leading to
shakeups for both that board and the City Council. Democrat Emily Serway, 36, of
Monroe Avenue, tendered her resignation from the school committee for personal
reasons in a letter to Chairman Ed Symbol and Superintendent Reza Namin on
Tuesday.City Democrats must nominate a replacement for Serway. Democratic City
Committee Chairman Brendan Rielly said they are hoping to quickly fill the void
left by Serway’s resignation since the school committee has a meeting on Tuesday
and will soon be immersed in budget season. A potential candidate for her post
is current Ward 5 City Councilor Suzanne Joyce, he said.
