The East Hampton School Board on Tuesday confirmed it will not hold a special election to fill the vacant board seat created by the resignation of Wendy Geehreng. Instead, the board informally agreed to solicit resumes from people in the community who may be interested in serving.
However, the board did not commit to definitely choosing a person to appoint to the empty seat, if no suitable candidates emerge. A subcommittee may be formed to help evaluate respondents.
"If you're interested, if you have an opinion, you have an idea, step forward," J.P. Foster, the school board president, said.
