The Secretary of State's office has received the resignation of Vermilion Parish School Board President Anthony Fontana. 

The resignation simply states that Fontana is resigning, and that his understanding is that it is effective upon receipt by the SOS. 

A spokeswoman for the office said the resignation letter was received today, and she said it is effective today.

Since Fontana's term expires this year anyway - he already said he was not seeking re-election - there will be no special election, she said. When there is less than a year left in a term, a temporary replacement is simply appointed to fill out that time. If the board hasn't appointed anyone to replace him within 20 days, the governor will do so, she said.

The election to fill Fontana's seat, which he has held for six terms, will be held at the normal time this fall.
