BCDP Response to State Rep. Margy Conditt’s Resignation

HAMILTON – Butler County Executive Committee Chair Jocelyn Bucaro issued the following statement in response to today’s news that State Representative Margy Conditt is resigning eight months into the two-year term she just voters to allow her to serve to represent them just last fall:

“We are disappointed that Rep. Conditt will not serve even half of her term and question why she ran for re-election last year.  She has served six years and has very little legislative accomplishments, except to vote in favor of budgets that have drastically reduced support for public schools, including Lakota, the largest school district she represents.  She steps down to enable Republican Party insiders to anoint yet another successor who answers to party bosses and not the voters they’re supposed to represent.”
