Re-1 school board swears in new member

A new face graces the Roaring Fork School District Re-1 board.

Bob Johnson, a Snowmass land manager, was sworn in Wednesday night as board member Peter Delany stepped down, marking the school board’s new term.

Delany, who served on the board for more than four years, was lauded for his sense of humor and the funky costumes he occasionally wore to board meetings.

Before the swearing-in ceremony, Delany briefly reminisced about his years on the board, and said that he learned in his time there that “it’s OK not to be an expert in education. It’s important to recognize we have tons of experts in education that are backing us up.”

Also sworn-in Wednesday was board member Michael Bair, an incumbent who was not challenged for his position at the end of his term.

The board also elected new officers. The board elected Bair board president, Bruce Wampler vice-chairman, Brad Zeigel secretary and Johnson treasurer.

Former board president Susan Hakanson is no longer an officer.

The school board’s next meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Re-1 administration building.

The board will also hold a two-hour meeting sometime in December to discuss the details of its search plan for a new superintendent.
