MARIETTA — Marietta school board member Logan Weber will resign April 15 to take an out of state job, prompting a special election to fill that seat on July 31.

Weber, a Marietta High School Class of 1997 graduate, said he would miss working with his fellow board members.

“We disagree, but at the end of the day everybody’s got the same goal in mind, which is the kids in Marietta,” he said. “If that’s not where you are when you’re running for office, then you shouldn’t run. Probably my real opinion is you should be tarred and feathered.”

Weber, who was elected to the board in November 2009, said he’s accepted a job with Tippmann Group in Nashville, leaving his current job as director of commodity development at Palmetto Food Service.

“It’s along the same lines of what I’ve done, except it’s going to be a bit more domestically focused in development and sales,” he said.

He and his wife, Katie, were house-hunting in the greater Nashville area Tuesday morning.

“It’s the only city truly in the Southeast I would live in besides Marietta,” Weber said.

Logan and Katie Weber have a 3-year-old daughter, with another child due this July. They live in the Village at Frasier Circle in Marietta.

I wish Logan and his family all the best. Thank you for choosing to serve the citizens, and especially the children, of Marietta.
