Today, 12-01-13, there remain less than 30 days for super lemire to make known to the public

a description of the “qualifications”, if any, she will seek to post,

prior to braun’s term expiration.

It would be interesting to read what such a laundry list of “qualifications” super lemire may draw into the 'board-imagined' list.

Perhaps, one of the schools board’s directives should have been to get the notice out before,

not after

the vacancy exists.

Maybe, there isn’t much in such a list of so-called "qualifications”.

Since 2011 we’ve had an eighteen year old student elected to that honorable body,

based on “his-stated-interest”, as a qualifier.

In an article published with the date of November 19, 2013 in the daily press:

"The board unanimously accepted Dewar-Braun's resignation and authorized Escanaba Superintendent Michele Lemire to make a notification of the expected vacancy,



qualified candidates to

fill Dewar-Braun's remaining year on the board, which expires Dec. 31, 2014."

"An individual is eligible for election as a school board member if the individual is a citizen of the United States and is a qualified and registered elector of the school district the individual seeks to represent" according to state law. An 18-yuear-old student is certainly qualified if he or she is registered to vote and lives in the district, and could bring a unique perspective as well as youthful energy to a board. Since you seem to have the answers to all life's questions, Cheese, why don't you give it a shot? And by the way, I don't think a board can legally begin the filling of a vacancy until one exists.
