Re-2 has a full board once again

RIFLE – Brad Moss of Rifle accepted the open position on Garfield County School District Re-2’s board of education at Tuesday night’s board meeting, which was held at Rifle Middle School.Moss has lived in Rifle for 20 years. He’s never worked for the school district, but does have a lot of friends who do, he said.Those friends started suggesting to him a few months ago that he should apply for the position, vacated by Kim Goosens last April. After some thought, he decided that it was something he was ready to do.”Nobody else stepped up to do it,” Moss said. “They wouldn’t let me be Superintendent, so I thought this would be all right.” Moss will fill the position of longtime board member Kim Goosens, who resigned from the school board after 14 years of service. The position represents Re-2’s district A, which encompasses Rifle High School and northern Rifle.After Moss read his oath in front of the other current board members on Tuesday they all welcomed him aboard.”We’re very fortunate that Brad has accepted the position,” said Re-2 school board President, Jay Rickstrew.Moss is the production superintendent for Williams, a natural gas company in Rifle he has worked for for 20 years. During Moss’ time in Rifle, his three kids attended Rifle schools, two of which graduated from RHS. His son, Haven, is currently in his junior year at the high school.Moss’ reasons for wanting to join are simple. He felt like he could contribute to the school board in a different way, he said.”I just think that it’s a good thing for the board to get someone who has an outside perspective,” Moss said. “I’m sure that I am going to learn a lot, too.”Contact John Gardner: 945-8515, ext. 535jgardner@postindependent.comBreakoutn Current Garfield County School District – Board of Education members are:n President, Jay Rickstrewn Vice President, Howard Stapletonn Secretary, Jan Hubbelln Director, Anne Guettlern Treasurer, Brad Moss
