Despite the efforts to unseat her, Rosa Gill is back as chairwoman of the school board.
Gill was unanimously elected as chairwoman for another one-year term. Lori Millberg, who was rumored to be lobbying for the job, seconded the nomination.
What might explain how things turned out is that Kevin Hill was elected vice chairman. He got the job after Beverley Clark declined the nomination because she said she had too much on her plate. Clark proceeded to nominate Hill.
All this took place when Ron Margiotta, who had been backing Gill, beat MIllberg to the punch to nominate Clark as vice chairwoman. Both Margiotta and Millberg spoke at about the same time, but he was slightly faster so his nomination came first.
According to the rumors, Hill was considered a swing vote for Millberg in a 5-4 contest. Without his support, MIllberg might have decided not to run.
Hill was elected by a 6-3 vote with Millberg, Patti Head and Horace Tart voting no. Head and Tart had been rumored to be supporters of MIllberg. Head was also rumored to be a candidate for vice chairwoman.
