New president named at Glendale
Wednesday, December 5, 2012
By Terry Whetstone Staff Writer
FLINTON - In a move that surprised a number of people at last night's Glendale School Board meeting, a new man will lead the school board in 2013, after four-year president Dr. Andy Mulhollen was ousted from his position.
Mulhollen opened the meeting and turned the seat over to solicitor Aimee Willett to act as interim president until a president could be named.
Ron Jasper made a motion to reappoint Mulhollen to the position with a second from John Franko. Just as quickly, a motion was made by Kent Ford to appoint Zane Hullihen to the position with a quick second from Richard Cree.
Willett advised board secretary Patty McGarvey to do a roll call vote, going to each board member and asking whom their vote is for.
McGarvey did that, and the final total was five for Hullihen and four for Mulhollen. Those in favor of Hullihen include Cree, Ford, Hullihen, his brother, Wendel and Theo Sinclair. Those voting for Mulhollen were: Jasper, Franko, Mulhollen and Rick Holes.
In a similar situation, Holes is no longer vice president of the board. Franko made a motion to appoint Holes as vice president and before a second could be offered Sinclair motioned to appoint Cree as vice president. Willet noted there was already a motion on the floor, then Mulhollen offered a second and then Sinclair remade her motion.
With the same five members voting, Cree was appointed vice president of the board with Holes receiving the same four votes Mulhollen received.
Mulhollen has served as president since 2009 and he was vice president in 2008. Holes took over as vice president in 2009.
Zane Hullihen was elected to the board just last year, although he did serve as a board member several years ago.
Sinclair will be the representative to the Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center with Franko as representative to the Central Intermediate Unit. Cree is the Pennsylvania School Boards Association Legislative Policy Council Representative and Ford is the PSBA Employee Relations Contact representative.
