At last night’s October 8 meeting, School Board President Jeff Basting read a resignation letter from Board Member Kelly Gundlach, effective immediately.

Gundlach’s letter stated that, as of November 1, her permanent address will be in Illinois. She added, “I am grateful to have represented the interest of taxpayers, parents, teachers, and last but not least the Students of Mineral Point School District.”

President Basting thanked Member Gundlach for her year and a half of service to the Mineral Point community. Gundlach took office in April 2017.

The Board will now begin searching for a replacement.

Any qualified elector of the District who is interested in filling the vacancy may submit a letter of application (addressing qualifications and interest) to the office of the District Administrator by November 5 at Noon.

The Board plans to consider potential appointees at its November 12 meeting. On or before this date, each potential appointee shall also submit a sworn declaration of eligibility to hold the vacant board seat. This can be done in the District Office at 705 Ross Street.
