McKENZIE (September 28) — The McKenzie Special School District Board of Education held a brief special called meeting Monday at the central office to determine who would be appointed to fill the vacancy recently created by the resignation of Norman French.
Board members considered four candidates to fill the two-year unexpired term: Craig Hobson, George Cassidy, Justin Stafford and Ashley Johnson.
Board member Greg Barker called it a “tough decision,” saying that all four candidates are “highly qualified.” Chad Brown echoed Barker’s sentiment.
In the first round of voting, Hobson and Cassidy each received two votes and Stafford received one.
To break the tie in the second round, Chairman Jon Davis instructed the other members to vote for either Hobson or Cassidy. Cassidy received three votes to Hobson’s two.
Cassidy will be sworn in as a board member at the next regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the McKenzie Middle School library.
