Mark Bloom Resignation, David Seiffert Appointment

In January, Mark Bloom resigned and the District 15 Board appointed David Seiffert to fill out the remaining two years of Mark Bloom's term; however, Seiffert is still on the ballot for a 4-year term.

As a voter, this makes Seiffert's candidacy more complex.

Normally a vote for a candidate means you want him or her elected to office. But Seiffert will remain in office whether you vote for him or not. Here’s what a vote for Dave Seiffert on April 5th means:

  • IF YOU VOTE FOR Seiffert and he is elected, he will resign his 2-year term to take the 4-year term. The same six board members (on a 4 to 2 vote) who gave Seiffert his 2-year term could select his replacement.

  • IF YOU DO NOT VOTE FOR Seiffert and he is not elected, he will continue to be a board member for a 2-year term. At the end of this 2-year term, voters will decide whether to re-elect Seiffert based on his record.
