The executive director of the Berkeley/Jefferson Day Report Center said Wednesday that he is resigning from the position to take a job that is much closer to his Harrisburg, Pa. area home.
Jason Castillo, who replaced Joe Sacchet in May 2012, is resigning from heading up the grant-funded alternative sentencing program to work for Avertest as a regional manager at a forensic drug testing facility in York, Pa.
Castillo said the hour-and-a-half commute to Martinsburg and gas prices factored into his decision to resign from what he said has been the greatest job he has ever had.
“I’m very sad to go,” Castillo said.
Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely, who serves as president of the Berkeley Jefferson Criminal Justice Board that hired Castillo, said this week that Castillo has done “a very good job.”
The board was set to meet Wednesday to consider Castillo’s resignation, among other items, but inclement weather prompted the meeting to be canceled.
Castillo’s resume was among more than 35 reviewed last year, Games-Neely said last spring.
