UV to appoint temporary member to fill board vacancy

NEW BERLIN – The Unadilla Valley Board of Education will vote Nov. 9 to appoint an interim board member to fill a vacancy until the May elections.

Former UV School Board Vice-President Stanley Foulds resigned his seat Aug. 16, and accepted a position as the school’s head varsity football coach.

Current Vice President Brian H. Burchill said Foulds had just been elected in 2010 to a three year term. He explained the board had the two other options of making an appointent for the full remaining term or holding an immediate special election for the seat.

“To hold an immediate special election would create added expenses for the district taxpayer in coordinating that activity. So we decided to wait until the next regular election to minimize costs and then let the voters decide,” said Burchill.

Burchill said he, along with board members Dr. Brian Brennan and John D. Elliott and South New Berlin community member John Lawrence, formed an advisory committee at the board’s consensus in September after they decided a temporary appointment was the best option.
