Board of Education appoints Thomas West to temporary post
March 10, 2020 -- The Marcellus Board of Education voted March 9 to appoint former BOE president Thomas West to temporarily fill the vacancy left when Dr. David Locastro resigned Feb. 10.
Voters will elect a permanent replacement when they go to the polls May 19. The non-incumbent candidate who garners the most votes will immediately step into the post occupied by Mr. West. Board member Margaret Vensel’s term, meanwhile, is set to expire June 30, and the second-highest vote-getter on election day will fill that spot in July.
District residents also will vote on the proposed 2020-21 school budget on May 19.
