Council, School Committee Seeks to Fill Vacancies Quickly

The Chelsea City Council and School
Committee held a joint meeting on Tuesday night, April 9, to get a quick step
forward on filling two vacancies on the School Committee.

Members Present included City Councilors Roy
Avellaneda, Damali Vidot, Bob Bishop, Luis Tejada, Enio Lopez, Judith Garcia,
and Yamir Rodriguez.

School Committee members present were Frank
DePatto, Rosemarie Carlisle, Jeannette Velez, Rich Maronski, Lucia Henriquez,
Ana Hernandez, Kelly Garcia, and Yessenia Alfaro.

Due to the recent resignations of School
Committee Chairman Richard Maronski and Vice Chairman Julio Hernandez,
the Chelsea City Council and Chelsea School Committee are
looking to fill their seats.

“This is a job that should be taken
seriously and hopefully we get someone that’s responsible and will show up,”
said Maronski.

“It’s unfortunate that we have these two
sudden resignations, but I’m hopeful as it has allowed for significant dialogue
around expectations and the representation our families deserve,” said Council

President Damali Vidot. “I am looking forward to working with the School
Committee to fill the vacancies.”

Any residents of District 3 or District 5
that are interested in serving the remaining unexpired terms through December
2019, are asked to submit their resumes and letters of interest to City Council
and Chelsea School Committee at: LKoco@Chelseama.gov or mail to

CORI. The Chelsea City Council and School Committee will be
accepting resumes until Friday April 26, and will conduct interviews on Monday
April 29. Anyone that lives in either District 3 or District 5 is
