Steve Brockman elected by vote of peers
The board of education for Valdez City Schools held its elections for officers Monday night during its regular meeting.
The in-house elections were held shortly after Sheri Pierce, city clerk, swore in Dan Walker and Dawn Farmer - two of the three incumbents re-elected to the board after citywide elections were held a week ago Tuesday, October 4.
Incumbent Anita Fannin was absent and excused from the meeting and will be sworn back into office at a future date.
The board elected board member Steve Brockman as its new president, upsetting a second term for Dan Walker, who was later elected vice-president of the board. Dawn Farmer was elected treasurer and Dr. Kathy Todd, who was also absent from the meeting, was re-elected board clerk.
The three incumbents re-elected to city council will be sworn in at the next regular council meeting this coming Monday, October 17 at city council chambers.
The council will then elect a member of its choice to act as mayor pro tem, an office currently filled by council member Dorothy Moore. Moore was re-elected to office in the same city-wide election last week.
Incumbents Mike Wells and Karen Ables were also retained by Valdez voters.
