February 14, 2003|By Jonathan D. Rockoff | Jonathan D. Rockoff,SUN STAFF

Renae Moore, president of the Owings Mills Elementary School PTA, was removed from office Wednesday night by the group's executive board as PTA officials continue looking for thousands of dollars in missing money.

Moore was removed for "nonperformance of duties," including failure to provide all information requested by auditors of the PTA's bank accounts and to update account records, said Rodger Janssen, vice president for leadership of the Baltimore County PTA Council.

The Reisterstown mother had come under fire for failing to account for more than $4,000 raised fromcandy sales last year.

Officials with the PTA Council, which oversees PTA groups at schools across the county, have said they have no evidence Moore did anything illegal.

Moore did not return phone calls yesterday. She has said she inherited the problems and was trying to fix them. She also has said she was cooperating with the PTA Council's auditor, John Ryan. But he has said she failed to provide records.
