Board appoints new member
Christopher Kunze has been selected to fill an open seat on the school board until the special election is held in November. The seat was formerly held by Liz Weisberg, who resigned earlier this summer. Kunze will be administered the oath of office at the October 7 board meeting, following the required 30 day period for petition.
A special election for the remaining one 1-year seat will be held November 2. Two candidates, Donald Hovland and Pete Kelzenberg, are running for the open seat. The winner of the special election will take office in mid-November.
