BOARD POLICY 1005
It was moved by Mrs. Sweeden and seconded by Mr. Wilcoxson to suspend Board Policy 1005 temporarily for the purpose of appointing a person to fill the seat of Mrs. Kristine A. Paul.

Mr. Setchell stated the Board has 60 days in which to appoint a replacement and he was uncomfortable moving ahead so quickly. He would rather wait and advertise for submission of applications.

Mr. Wilcoxson echoed Mr. Setchell’s concerns. The only reason he seconded the motion was in light of the recent election. The College had a recent election with two very good candidates and two of the three have applied. Based on the caliber of the applicants and the voter’s response, he is willing to suspend the policy.

Roll Call Vote: “Ayes”- Mr. Mallery, Mr. Wilcoxson, Mr. Thompson, and Mrs. Sweeden. “Nays” – Mr. Setchell, motion carried.
