Plum School Board names new president

Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, 5:33 p.m.
 

The Plum School Board has a new president.

Board members during Tuesday night's reorganization meeting voted to appoint Sal Colella president. Colella, formerly board vice president, was re-elected in November to a four year term that expires in December 2017.

“It is a privilege and honor to serve the students and citizens of Plum Borough,” said Colella, a Republican. “I am here to make sure we meet the expectations of all parties.”

Prior to Colella's appointment, Plum District Judge Linda Zucco administered the oath of office to Colella and Kevin Dowdell. Dowdell, a Republican, was elected to a third four-year term.

Plum Mayor Richard Hrivnak administered the oath of office to new board member Michelle Stepnick, a Democrat. Democrat Michele Gallagher, also elected in November, was not in attendance.

“I am excited and look forward to the challenges facing the district,” Stepnick said. “I look forward to mending fences and seeing compromise as everyone promised we will have.”
