Fulks is new Boardman school board member

Published: Fri, July 18, 2014 @ 3:44 p.m.


The board of education voted unanimously Thursday to appoint Mark Fulks to fill the seat that was left vacant after the death of the board’s president, Nik Amstutz, last month.

According to Kim Poma, who took over as board president, Fulks was chosen for the seat because of his previous experience as a board member.

“Mark had 16 years as a school board member and was defeated in November. We felt that because we lost an experienced board member, we couldn’t pass up the experience Mark brought,” Poma said. “Although, every candidate we interviewed was very impressive. Boardman would have been well served by any of them.”

The board interviewed a total of seven candidates for the seat.

Because Poma took over as president, the seat of the vice president is now open. The board will elect a new vice president at its next meeting on July 28. Fulks will also be sworn in at this meeting.

The voters decided they wanted a change last fall. Why did the board put this guy back in again if the people wanted him out. Ridiculous.

Same old poorly maintained buildings and grounds, worst sports venues in the valley, good old boy leadership that worries about the status quo, not building and leading into the future.Very sad what has happened, or not happened, over the past 20 years.

i guess i don't see him as voted out as much as the next highest vote getter. none of the other candidates even ran, so obviously this guy wanted it enough to run. i think he only lost by 40 votes or so.
