By David Wenner
State Rep. Glen Grell of Cumberland County will leave the Legislature to become executive director of the Public School Employees’ Retirement System, ABC27 is reporting.
Grell, a Republican, was elected to the state House in 2004 to represent a district that includes Camp Hill, Hampden and East Pennsboro townships and part of Silver Spring Township.
ABC27 said a special election will be held to fill the seat. Grell didn’t immediately return a message on Tuesday evening.
Grell, a lawyer, was a member of the PSERS board of trustees from 2009 to 2014.
PSERS has been headed by an acting executive director, Terrill Sanchez, who was appointed following the recent retirement of longtime Executive Director Jeffrey Clay.
As of mid-2014, PSERS oversaw assets of $53 billion and pensions involving 267,000 active school employees and 209,000 retirees.
