From the AJC:

“Recent judicial determinations make it unlikely that I can effectively serve at any time in the foreseeable future,” she wrote in an emailed letter to State Superintendent John Barge, Gov. Nathan Deal, Cherokee school board members and the board’s attorney. “Rather than leave my seat in limbo while the issues surrounding my status are resolved, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I resign my position with the Cherokee School Board, effective immediately.”

Marlow and associates Robert Trim and Barbara Knowles, who were also found guilty Saturday night, alleged that Cherokee Superintendent Frank Petruzielo tried to hit them with his SUV after a contentious late-night school board meeting June 13, prosecutors said.

Right move? Wrong move? Who will run for this seat?

Kelly made the correct decision to resign. I would expect a candidate to step forward from the group that was formed to remove Kelly from office. Or maybe Kyla Cromer who Kelly beat by 24 votes 2 years ago.

I think Kyla will win easy….

I guess Kudos for saving the State a bullet.

It was pointless. According to GA law she lost her seat the moment she was convicted of a felony.
