About a dozen applicants are looking to fill a vacant seat on the Brookfield Board of Education. The group received nine applications by Friday's deadline. Who ever fills the roll has to be a Democrat or an unaffiliated voter according to minority party rules. The seat is open through the 2015 election.
It was vacated by 26-year old Greg Beck, who was elected as part of the "A Brookfield Party".
Beck, an emergency dispatcher, came under fire just after the election when he 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.
