Chimacum School Board swears in new board members

CHIMACUM — The Chimacum School Board gained three new members and after they took the oath of office, they quickly made changes to the board’s dynamic.

The three new members are Mickey Nagy, director of District 2; Kristina Mayer, director of District 3; and Tami Robocker, director of District 4. They were sworn in by superintendent Rick Thompson on Wednesday night in the Chimacum High School library.

The three joined current board members Jack McKay, director of District 1, and Sarah Martin, director of District 5, as well as the two student representatives, seniors Rachel Matthes and Shawn Rollness.

After the three were sworn in, the directors started in on the agenda for the meeting, and the first order of business was to elect a new chair and other roles for the board.

For the board chair position, McKay, Mayer and Martin all nominated themselves and were seconded; however, McKay withdrew his name before votes were cast.

Mayer won the chair position in a 3-2 vote, with herself, Nagy and Robocker voting for her, while McKay and Martin voted for Martin, in a clear divide between new members and current members of the board.

For the vice chair position, McKay won after running unopposed.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) representative position went to Nagy, who ran unopposed.

The legislative representative position is elected on a biannual term. Martin is currently going into her second year and the position will be up for election next fall.

The student representatives for the board are appointed at the beginning of the school year and will be replaced after June 2020.
