IMLAY CITY — Tonight (Jan. 12) the Imlay City School Board will interview four candidates and select their newest member.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m. the candidates will be interviewed in an open meeting to be held at the Educational Service Center/Board Office. They include the Rev. Dr. Marcel Allen Lamb, John Lengemann, Julia Lengemann and Scott Schultz.
Following that vetting, the board is expected to make an appointment at the conclusion of that meeting.
Whoever is selected will fill the vacancy that occured last month when Dan Campbell tendered his resignation.
Campbell stepped down from the board after being offered a job by the district. On January 4 he began his new position as Director of Maintenance, Grounds and Special Projects.
The appointee will have the chance to place their name on the 2018 ballot if they desire to fill Campbell's entire term through 2020.
Eligible candidates were asked to submit letters of interest to the district by January 5.
Candidates must be a registered voter of the Imlay City Schools District, at least 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Michigan for a least 30 days.
