The Santa Clara Country Board of Education reappointed Darcie Green to a trustee seat on Wednesday after her resignation in March.
Green was previously appointed to replace Craig Mann for Trustee Area 6 in October of last year. At that time, Green lived within the new district lines drawn for Area 6. But an anonymous complaint lodged with the District Attorney’s office resulted in deputy DA John Chase informing the Board that Green’s home did not reside in the old district boundary lines, which should have been used when for an appointment to serve out the rest of Mann’s term. On Wednesday, the Board unanimously approved her reappointment, according to the Mercury News.
After Green offered the Board her resignation, she informed her supporters with a letter on March 19.
“I have always been committed to do what is best for young people in my community and to act to ensure public trust in government,” Green wrote. “It is with this in mind, that I write this letter.”
Green then established a new address in the old district and reapplied for her seat. On Wednesday, the board voted unanimously for Green to regain her seat. Had this not occurred, Green would have relinquished her seat on the Alum Rock board in vain to move to the county Board.
Green will sit on the Santa Clara County Board of Education with six other members: Leon F Beauchman, Michael Chang, Joseph Di Salvo, Julia Hover-Smoot, Grace H Mah and Anna Song.
Green continues to work as a government and community affairs manager at Kaiser Permanente.
