Cindy Downton, an elected member of the Garrett County Board of Education for the last 5 years, has announced that she will not seek re-election in November.  
 
Mrs. Downton remarked," I would like to thank the staff and parents who have looked toward me in the last few years to make smart decisions regarding the education of their children. When I first was appointed to the Board of Education we were in the middle of closing several elementary schools. I feel the system is much more stable now and our teachers continue to do an outstanding job every day in their classrooms. After promoting the welfare of children in Garrett County for 31 years (26 working here and 5 as a BOE member), I intend to take some time off to devote to my own family. I have been honored to serve the students of Garrett County and know, with the support of their parents and the community, they will continue to do great things in the future, and every day."
