A link to the livestream is available here.

Rose D’Ambrosi (Highland), Brian Conley (Commerce), Amy Grzymkowski (Commerce) and Eric Lakin (Milford) were selected from a pool of 11 applicants. Those vying for the position were asked to submit responses on a series of questions ranging from community involvement to their understanding of the role of public education.

All four candidates will be interviewed in an open meeting set for Wednesday, Jan. 26 at the Lakeland High School LGI. Each applicant is allotted 30 minutes to answer questions from the board. The first interview begins at 5 p.m. It is anticipated that board members will select Long’s successor at Wednesday’s meeting.

Long was last elected in 2020 for a four-year term. With his resignation, the board is required to appoint a replacement within 30 days from the date of resignation. A newly-appointed board member will serve up to the November 2022 election. The appointed board member may choose to run for the balance of Long’s four-year term, which expires Dec. 31, 2024.
