'Secret ballot' prompts revote

Notice of the meeting briefly appeared on the school's Web site Friday announcing the special session.

When the votes were cast, the result mirrored Monday's result: Nancy del Prado won the election and was sworn in as president of the board.

The four board members who voted for del Prado were: del Prado, Dan Fregoe, Gary Spadaro and Joe Salamone. Voting against her appointment as president were: French, Charles Macejka, and Julie Adamec.

Since the four affirmative votes for del Prado gave her the win, Swezey did not poll the three who opposed her appointment.

After the second election, del Prado said it was a good thing that someone questioned the board about the first election.

"I would much rather have too much interest in the board than not enough," del Prado said.

French accepted the repeated result with equanimity, saying it went pretty much the way she expected it would.

"I'll move on and do what I came to do, which is promote student success and pride in the community," French said. ""
