Steve Weinstein Resigns as Haddonfield BOE President, Remains on Board
The announcement was made in a statement Thursday. Weinstein did not attend.
Haddonfield Board of Education President Steve Weinstein is stepping down as president but remaining on the board, school Superintendent Richard Perry announced during a board meeting Thursday. In a statement, Weinstein cited time constraints of a new position as general counsel of Rowan University with not providing enough time to continue as president.
He said he will remain on the board until his term ends at the end of this year.
Perry read a statement from Weinstein into the minutes of the meeting. Weinstein was on vacation and not at the meeting.
Weinstein, 67, an attorney, was hired as the general counsel of Rowan University last fall. The university is expanding rapidly into a medical research school in collaboration with Cooper University Hospital.
Board Vice President Glenn Moramarco was unanimously elected president at the end of Thursday's meeting. One of the newest board members, Andrew Berlin, was elected vice president.
Perry, Moramarco and Berlin all praised Weinstein's leadership of the board.
