Madison City Council seeking applicants for school board open position
By MARIA RAKOCZY
MADISON – The city of Madison on Tuesday announced that they are taking applications for school board candidates. The position is that of Travis Cummings as his term expires. He has decided to apply for another term, but that has to be approved by the city council.
John Peck, public relations manager for Madison City Schools, explained, “The Board of Education has five members who each serve a five year term. The terms are staggered, so one district member’s term ends each year. This year, the term of Travis Cummings expires. The City Council will decide whether to reappoint him or appoint a new member.”
Cummings is eligible to reapply for his seat and announced his intention to do so at Thursday’s school board meeting. The city council is accepting applications from other candidates who “want to get involved and directly impact [their] community”.
The application considers a candidate’s community involvement and character, and requires that the candidate be a resident of the city of Madison and supply references from three other Madison residents. Applications are open until March 7.
