deJersey quits Union Bay Improvement District board

Alan deJersey has resigned from the Union Bay Improvement District board of trustees, even though his term does not end until next spring.

deJersey formerly served as chair of the board. He is one of eight plaintiffs named in a lawsuit against Union Bay resident Mary Reynolds.

The civil action stems from alleged defamatory material that appeared on Reynolds' blog dubbed All Things Union Bay.

deJersey was replaced as board chair by Carol Molstad in early-May. Molstad is a member of Taxpayers for Accountable Governance (TAG), as are UBID trustees Cleve Goldswain, Bruce Livesey and Anne Alcock.

Recently, the UBID agreed to pay Reynolds $15,000 after the two sides consented to an order dismissing the district's claim about the alleged defamatory material.
