Letters of interest are being accepted by the Brookfield Board of Education to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Greg Beck, who was elected as part of the "A Brookfield Party". Chairman Scott McCarthy says applicants have to be from any party but the Republican Party because of minority party representation rules.
The term runs through the November 2015 election.
Before the start of the January 7th meeting Beck, a 26-year old emergency dispatcher who came under fire just after the election, announced his resignation. Beck posted a Facebook comment on a 26 Acts of Kindness page leading up to the 12-14 anniversary saying he would buy his gun enthusiast friends ammunition. Beck apologized and deleted the comment shortly after.
Applicants are asked to send a letter of interest along with a brief resume outlining their education and professional or other experiences that they believe would contribute to being an effective board member.
The deadline for applications is Friday. The Board will interview applicants shortly thereafter. They 60 have days from when the vacancy occurred to fill the role.
