School Board Seeking Baber's Replacement
LA MESA -- Bill Baber's successful run for the La Mesa City Council has created an opening on the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District's Board of Education. On Tuesday, after swearing-in the winners in November's election, the board began the process for filling the remainder of Baber's term.
The district could have set a date for a special election, but the cost of holding such a vote could exceed $400,000. The other option was to appoint a resident within 60 days to fill out Baber's term.
The district announced Tuesday it will be receiving applications for appointment to serve on the board through December, 2016. The seat is open to anyone 18 years old and living within the boundaries of the school district. The board is receiving applications through Jan. 12, 2015 and eight finalists will be selected for interviews at a special board meeting Tuesday, Jan. 27th at 4 p.m. The meeting is held in the Boardroom at the district's 4750 Date Avenue offices in La Mesa Village.
Each candidate will make a three-minute presentation and then field questions from the four sitting board members.
Applications can be sent to Brian Marshall, C/O La Mesa-Spring Valley School District, 4750 Date Ave., La Mesa, Copies of the formal application information can be obtained by mail by sending a request to the district office or can be seen on the school's website by CLICKING HERE.
