South Portland School Board member resigns

SOUTH PORTLAND — Jeffrey Selser, who was elected to his first term on the School Board last November, resigned Friday to take a coaching job at Mahoney Middle School.

Citing his passion for coaching and a state law prohibiting board members from coaching in the districts they represent, Selser said he decided to take the seventh-grade soccer coaching job after speaking with friends and family.

Before his election as an at-large board member, Selser handled media relations for Renew SPHS, the political action committee created in 2010 to help pass the $41.5 million bond to renovate and expand South Portland High School.

The remaining two years of Selser's term will be filled by appointment by the City Council.
