School Board Replacement Pre-selected?
By Carl Webb
October 16, 2016
I am embarrassed that we voters have failed to ask why School Board President Michelle O’Brien, who announced a long time ago that she would resign from the Board, chose to do it one week after the official election. She even announced the date. Because of that decision, the voters of Ketchikan were denied the right to select the new board member and the current Board will be making the choice.
It begs the question - has there been a plan by some members to choose a pre-selected candidate?
It has been suggested that there was a plan to bring back a former member if he was not successful in his bid for another office. Purposely bypassing the public process and rigging an appointment is wrong and I hope the rumor is untrue.
