The search is on for a new member of the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School Committee.

The opening came up when Melissa Even Moore resigned late last month. Her seat on the board must be filled by another Wenham resident and will be filled until next April's town election, when voters will select someone to fill the rest of Moore's term, according to Debi Morong from Town Administrator Mark Andrews office.

Moore said she resigned because her family was looking for a new home in Hamilton or Wenham but was not be able to find one and had to move out of town.

The deadline to express interest is the opening is Friday, Oct. 25. Anyone who is interested should contact School Committee Chairman Roger Kuebel at r.kuebel@hwschools.net. 

The committee holds it regular meetings on the first and third Thursdays of the month, plus committee meetings.

It is the second time in the past two years where a School Committee opening from Wenham needed to be filled between elections.  In September 2011, former Wenham Board of Selectmen Chairman Larry Swartz was selected to fill the open seat of Don Gallant.

Doesn't this provide the opportunity to REDUCE the size of the School Committee from the present nine members to a number more in keeping with that of most other similarly sized school districts... to FIVE, or at most SEVEN? When the district was first formed, it was thought to be necessary, but no longer. Time to open the discussion. Time for a change.

Makes sense to me... just let the position go unfilled.
