Fontana resigning from Vermilion Parish School Board

Posted: Updated:

Anthony Fontana, longtime Vermilion Parish School Board member, is resigning early, the Abbeville Meridional reports. 

Fontana, who is serving his sixth term on the board, already had announced last year that he would not be running for re-election this year. 

Fontana sent a letter to the newspaper announcing his intentions. To read the newspaper's full story, click here

“When I was re-elected three years ago for my sixth time, my goal was that this would be my last term. That is why I announced last year that I would not seek re-election in 2018," the letter states. "However, over the course of the last two years many things have occurred that made me think long and hard about resigning my seat."

Fontana wrote that he felt he needed to ensure that Superintendent Jerome Puyau got a new contract - and that was accomplished at the last board meeting.
