of the major players are out of town, but the Kodiak Island Borough Board of
Education plans to hold a special meeting telephonically tomorrow (Wednesday)
to select a replacement for Peggy Tuttle, who resigned from the board recently.
KMXT’s Casey Kelly reports.
board president Betty Odell and members Jeff Stephan and Norm Wooten are all
out of town, leaving Melissa Borton as the only member who will be attending
the meeting in person. Odell, who’s in Massachusetts this week, says the board

out of town are Peggy Rauwolf and Ken McCarty, the two candidates for the
vacant seat, who the school board interviewed at a work session last week.

of who the selection is, they won’t be sworn in and seated until next week at
the earliest. McCarty is out of town until next Monday, which is the same day
as the school board’s next regularly scheduled meeting. If he is chosen, he’ll
be sworn in that night. Rauwolf is out of town until the end of the month. So
if she’s the selection, it will have to wait until July. Odell apologizes to
the public for the unusual circumstances, but she says sometimes these things
can’t be helped.

special meeting to announce the selection of the new school board member will
start at noon Wednesday in the school district conference room, downstairs in
the borough building. Whoever is selected will serve until the municipal
elections in October.
