The Board of Education has selected Dave Molitor as its president for the upcoming year.
Molitor, who has served as vice president for the past year, replaces current board member Mike Aurelio, who was also up for the position Tuesday night.
Kevin Doherty was elected vice president—a position he held from 2010-2011. Cindy Kelly retained her position as board secretary.
During the meeting, board members were split when it came time to appoint new officers.
Molitor was nominated for the office of president by Doherty, and was elected by a 4-2 vote. Molitor, Doherty, Kelly and board member Lisa Wright voted for Molitor, and board members Al Malley and Karen Siston voted against. Aurelio abstained.
Prior to the Molitor's appointment, Aurelio was also nominated for president by Malley. The motion failed 4-3, with Molitor, Doherty, Kelly and Wright casting the dissenting votes.
Doherty was elected by a 4-3 vote, with Aurelio, Siston and Malley casting the dissenting votes. Aurelio had nominated Siston for the position just before he was nominated again by Malley.
