    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Channel 2 Action News has learned Cobb County School Superintendent Michael Hinojosa has resigned.

    Hinojosa announced his resignation at Monday night's board meeting citing personal reasons for the resignation.

    "I had some heartburn when I made this decision over the holidays because of the tremendous budget deficits that we were facing," Hinojosa said. 

    Hinojosa said he plans to leave at the end of May. He said he has been offered a lucrative position as a senior vice president at a company, but did not specify which, saying he would be able to work from home so he can concentrate on his family.

    "I feel much more comfortable announcing my intent to retire now that we can make this budget. It will also give this board the opportunity to start thier search for the next superintendent," Hinojosa said.
