NEWS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter has announced a vacancy on the Mingus Union High School District Governing Board, due to the resignation of Board Member Greg Roeller. In his letter of resignation, Mr. Roeller wrote that the cause of his resignation was related a health issue. “Mr. Roeller’s service to the children, parents, staff, and taxpayers of the district will be greatly missed”, Carter said.
Due to the proximity of this vacancy to the filing deadline for the upcoming November 2022 Governing Board elections, Mr. Carter does not plan to fill this vacancy. The election process that is currently underway allows the voters to do that. Superintendent Carter said, “Due to the timeline that filling this vacancy would require, it is in the best interest of all involved to wait until the nomination / election process is concluded to make an appointment. There are currently four (4) candidates for two (2) seats, each with a four (4) year term ending in 2026. The appointment, expected to be in mid-November after the canvass of election, will be of the candidate who receives the highest number of votes from the electorate, but not enough to be elected outright. That person will be appointed to fulfill the open seat, from the appointment in mid-November 2022 until December 31, 2024.
It is very unlikely, but this decision may be reconsidered if circumstances warrant a review.
