Dave Molitor Named President of District 113A School Board

Kevin Doherty was named vice president, while Cindy Kelly retained her position as secretary.

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.

Highfire, what ever happened to you saying you were going to stop posting on the Patch? Must be hard to break the cycle of addiction. You are becoming the male version of Ann Paul. Highfire you are a nobody. You post on the Patch, that's it. You have never held a public office in town. You complain about everything, 113A, the Core, the Library. You had nothing to do with Ricker and Beckwiths departure. You had nothing to do with bringing Aldi to town. You live in some type of pseudo fantasyland where you think you actually do things in the village. You get your kicks posting negative comments about elected officials on public blogs. That is all you do, you're a joke, plain and simple.

Mr Finn, did Mr. Aurelio do all that you claim he did without any input or assistance from the six other board members? You forgot to list all of the things that Mr. Aurelio didn't do as a board president which is probably part of the reason he wasn't elected again to that position. Those insiders that you refer to can list those for you as well. Wondering what you meant in #5, as Mr. Aurelio had nothing to do with the financial plan that the district is following to get back to a point of solvency. The board presidency is not beholden to Mr. Aurelio or any other board member. From all that I have heard Mr. Molitor has done an outstanding job as vice-president and I am glad to see him elected as the new board president, good luck to him!

Dave Andrews, You have no idea what you are talking about and I have nothing to prove to . I'm a joke ? as far as I'm concerned you don't even exist. I had everything to do with bringing Aldi to town . I don't claim to be doing anything for the village currently . Although I did suggest putting in an off-ramp to the downtown are a while 355 was being constructed, and maybe a green information sign so people would exit . When's the last time you shopped downtown?

Hank, specifically how did you personally bring Aldi to town? What are the names of the Aldi execs that you spoke to? What is Aldis marketing plan for the placement of a store? What is the average mark up and profit margin for grocery stores?
