Just days after the Chairman of the Blackfoot School Board stepped down, a second trustee, who also faced the threat of a recall petition, has resigned.

Jenny Hong released this statement Monday, "I would like to inform our community that I am resigning from my position as a member of the Blackfoot School District No. 55 Board of Trustees, effective immediately."

"I am truly grateful for the opportunity that I have had to serve the children of our district. I have always done my best to make decisions with the board for educating our children. Though some may disagree, I know that the decision that we made as a board with respect to the separation agreement was what was best for our district and our children."

"I wish the other board members the best as they continue to serve our children and know they will continue to make the best decisions for the district. There will be no further comment from me on this matter."

Blackfoot School District administrators have declined further comment on these resignations.

A group of community members, the "Concernced Citizens of District 55", delivered signed petitions to the Bingham County Clerk's office on January 28, 2013, calling for the recall of Trustee Jenny Hong and Chairman Scott Reese. A spokesperson for the group, Rick Bigler, says they will now focus their attention on the trustee election next May.
