Green Lake swears in new school board member

Board members watching new Green Lake School Board member Sarah Allen sign her oath of office statement are, from left, Sydney Rouse, Loni Meiborg, President Sue Sorenson, Andy Gryske, Ron Triemstra and Meade Grim.

And they’re back to seven.

Without skipping hardly a beat, the Green Lake School Board returned to full strength at its monthly meeting last week Wednesday.

Sarah Allen, picked after the board interviewed her, Tammy Thiem and Dennis Krueger last week Monday, officially was sworn into the board.

During the selection process, several board members stressed the strength of the candidates, and the vote left no room to breath. ...

The extremely close voting seemed to indicate that the board would have been happy with any of the three.

Allen’s term will expire in April, and the seat will be up for election.

To see how the board members voted, read the Sept. 28, 2017 edition of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.
