TUSD Board May Pick New Trustee on Tuesday


After Turlock Unified School District Trustee Grady Welch resigned from his position in early July, the Board of Trustees has been on the hunt for a provisional appointee to fill the position.

The Board of Trustees may fill that vacancy at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

Tuesday evening the Board of Trustees will interview four candidates for the provisional board appointment: Llewellyn Boyle, Barney Gordon, Deborah Martin, and Marsha Memmott. After conducting the interviews, the board will decide whether or not to appoint one of the individuals during the same meeting.

“The Board of Trustees are scheduled to hold interviews for the provisional appointment process, possibly leading to the appointment that evening,” said TUSD Administrative Assistant Roberta Cheney.

TUSD accepted applications and letters of intent throughout the month of July. A screening committee comprised of three board members met to review each candidate’s information form, working to narrow down the selection of candidates. The four remaining candidates are to be interviewed by the entire board on Tuesday.

The Stanislaus County Superintendent received the official resignation of Welch on July 5. Welch, who was elected to the Board of Trustees in November 2011, still had two years left in his term. The individual selected as the provisional appointee will serve the term of Aug. 20, 2013 through November 2015, when a regular election process will take place.

Welch stated in an official resignation letter to the district that it was his intent to resign due to many extenuating circumstances.

“It has been and honor and privilege to serve for a short while,” said Welch in the letter. “I hope that the Board of Trustees will continue to do great things for the students of Turlock.”

The Board of Trustees could have opted to call for a special election following Welch’s resignation, but this option could have cost the district up to $96,250. A provisional appointment was estimated to cost the district only $500.

Tuesday evening, the Board of Trustees will also hear recommendations from Superintendent Dr. Sonny Da Marto regarding the positions of Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, and the Principal of Turlock High School.

Additionally, the school board will receive information regarding any updates to the 2013-14 Budget.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
