After 37 years with the Los Angeles Unified School District, finance chief Robert Booker announced Wednesday that he is resigning Dec. 31 to become the chief financial officer for San Diego County. During a morning news conference crowded with district employees, Booker said he is leaving because of his "own personal plan" to slow down and avoid the long hours and stress involved in managing the finances of the nation's second-largest school district. The San Diego post will provide a "golden opportunity" to continue to pursue a career he loves, said Booker, who at 62 is eligible to retire from the district and collect a pension from the state estimated at more than $125,000 a year.
