At a special swearing-in ceremony on Friday, Nov. 20, Montezuma-Cortez Re-1 officials are expected to conduct interviews with potential board members.
To date, three county residents have expressed an interest to serve two-year terms on the school board. Melody Krob and Kara Suckla are seeking a seat to represent District G, and Sheri Noyes is hoping to take the District F post.
In an election earlier this month, no candidates applied to replace term-limited board president Tim Lanier in District G, which spans west from U.S. 491 and roughly north of County Road G, or retiring board member Brian Demby in District F, which spans east of U.S. 491 to roughly County Road 24.
Lanier and Demby had served 12 and six years, respectively, on the board. They officially gave up their seats following last week’s regularly scheduled board meeting.
The swearing-in ceremony is held for Sherri Wright and Pete Montano to take their official oaths of office for four-year terms.
Wright won her seat in landslide victory defeating challenger Joseph Miller in this month’s election. Montano was re-elected without any opposition.
