Paul Bartholomew, District 4 of the Williamson County School Board , will resign his Board seat effective July 20, 2015, for personal reasons. Questions have arisen regarding how that seat is to be filled. According to a Williamson Strong article put out this morning:
Commissioner Kathy Danner says she and Gregg Lawrence (District 4 County Commissioners) alone hold the power to nominate someone for the position. “We’ll interview all the applicants and make a final decision for appointment,” Danner said.
The law, however, gives all commissioners—not just the two from District 4—the right to nominate.
The entire County Commission votes on all nominees.
Williamson Source has reached out to Commissioners Danner and Lawrence for comment.
