Trustee resigns, now works for school board

  • Oct. 15, 2008 7:00 a.m.

Port Clements and Tlell will be without a trustee on the school board for the next six weeks following the resignation of Lisa Gyorgy. Ms Gyorgy, who has represented Central Graham Island on the school board since 2005, resigned last week in order to take a job in the school district office in Queen Charlotte. Starting Friday, she will be working as the district’s part-time confidential secretary and receptionist, said superintendent Angus Wilson. Mr. Wilson said it is unusual for a trustee to be hired by a school district, but that there is an impartial system in place to make sure the job goes to the best candidate. “It is pretty unusual but we do have a very good hiring process,” he said. The decision about who to hire was made by several people, he said, and Mr. Wilson himself was not involved. The school district won’t have to hold a by-election to replace Ms Gyorgy as trustee elections are being held Nov. 15. There are three candidates running for the Central Graham Island seat: Elizabeth Condrotte of Tlell (a longtime teacher and administrator in the district, now retired), and Cheri Kleidon and Robert Hitchcock of Port Clements.
