Elmore Resigns, Holliday to Name Replacement

by Stephanie CrosbyLongtime Jefferson County School Board member Ann Elmore resigned her position last night, citing personal reasons. She’d been a member of the board for 16 years, and retired immediately, instead of in December as she’d planned.State Education Commissioner Terry Holliday now will appoint a replacement. Spokesperson Lisa Gross says they’ll move quickly once they receive official notice of Elmore’s resignation.“The statute gives us about 90 days to complete the process," says Gross, "but we try to expedite it because it’s always a good idea to move forward with these kinds of activities so that school boards can have their full contingent when they’re trying to make decisions.”Gross says they’ll take applications for two weeks from people interested in filling the position, then make a selection from there.One person – Attica Scott – has filed to run for Elmore’s seat in the November election.
