Gary Ziegler has resigned from the Kane School Board.
The surprise announcement came earlier this week in a letter to the school board.
"I am choosing to resign from my position on the Kane Area School District Board of Directors effective immediately," Ziegler said in his letter. "I do not have the desire to continue serving as a director."
Ziegler is the fifth member of the volunteer nine-member school board to resign in the past eight months.
