Board of Education fills short-term vacancy

The Cedar Springs Board of Education held a special meeting Monday evening, December 10, and filled a 21-day vacancy on the board that was a result of an unexpired term. 

Trent Gilmore had been in the seat, but when he won the election, he moved to Jeff Rivard’s seat. Rivard won Gilmore’s seat, but wasn’t scheduled to take the oath of office until January, due to the laws surrounding appointed and elected seats. This created a 21-day vacancy.

Only one person submitted a letter of interest to the school in being appointed to the seat—Jeff Rivard. The board approved the appointment and he was sworn in at the meeting Monday evening.

Both Traci Slager and Trent Gilmore were also sworn in at Monday’s meeting. Mistie Bowser will take the oath of office in January when Matt McConnon’s term is up.
