Moser steps down as School Board vice chair / September 13, 2021
Embattled Halifax County School Board vice chairman Todd Moser tendered his resignation Sunday night, leaving the school board with only seven members until a replacement is named to fill the vacant ED-6 seat. On Monday, trustees unanimously elected Roy Keith Lloyd to succeed Moser as vice chair.

Moser, who has been implicated in an embezzlement scheme as Halifax County's chief animal warden, allegedly stole county funds over a five-year period, according to an email sent this week by Halifax County Administrator Scott Simpson to Supervisors. Reached by the News & Record on Sunday, Moser declined comment on the allegations.

In a letter submitted Sunday night, Moser informed Superintendent of Schools Mark Lineburg and School Board Chair Kathy Fraley of his decision to resign. In the letter, Moser said he was stepping down with a “heavy heart” and added, “I have and will continue to appreciate the opportunity to serve my district, my county and the students as well as their families.”

Moser’s letter, which Lineburg read aloud, continued, “Due to personal reasons and health reasons I want to spend quality time with my family. With this in mind, please respect my decision and my privacy. I wish the School Board success with moving forward with the tough issues ahead, and also with appointing a successor. Sincerely, S. Todd Moser.”

Without comment, the six trustees on hand for the September monthly meeting voted unanimously to accept Moser’s resignation. Also a 6-0 vote, the board named Lloyd as the new vice chair. He was the lone nominee for the position, with Freddie Edmunds making the motion to name Lloyd, seconded by Potts.

ED-7 trustee Keith McDowell was absent from the meeting.
