Editor’s note: I can’t blame him. 13 years is a pretty huge commitment.
POTTSTOWN — For Pottstown School Board member Robert Hartman Jr., 13 years of service is apparently long enough.
At the close of Monday night’s school board meeting, Hartman announced that he will not seek another four-year term on the board in the spring primary elections.
Hartman said that with the deadline for petitions for the primary election approaching, he wanted to be sure his intentions were known so that anyone who is considering running for the office would know whether or not they would have to face him in the polls.
“I’ve heard that other people may be interested and it’s not fair for them not to know,” Hartman said.
