Two candidates have thrown their names into the hat to serve as the District 2 (rural) appointee to the North Adams School Board.
Root Township Trustee Dan Bieberich reports that resumes were received from Michelle Stimpson, who currently holds the seat, and from former board member Juan Gutierrez.
The candidates will be interviewed at 7 p.m. on April 12 at the Union Township hall. The successful candidate will serve a full four-year term on the board.
The school board's District 2 includes Union, Root and Preble townships, and the northern two miles of Washington Township, outside the city of Decatur. \ The upcoming appointment will be the final one made by the townships as the North Adams board later this year begins its transformation from an appointed body to an elected one.
