Karen Delhey will not seek another term on the Saline Area Schools Board of Education – meaning there will be at least one new face on the board in 2019.
Delhey said she’s loved her time serving on the board, but believes it’s time to move on and allow others to serve.
“With my youngest graduating next year and an empty nest in my future, I don’t know where I will land and can’t commit to another six years,” Delhey said. “I am so thankful I had the opportunity to serve.”
Delhey was first elected to the board in 2012 with Dianne Friese.
The other incumbent is Scott Hummel. Hummel, a teacher in Dearborn, was first elected to the board in 2016 to complete a two-year term. Hummel is running for re-election.
“I would very much like to build on what the board is doing / has done. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the board and will hopefully be able to continue for the next six years,” Hummel said.
The other person who has made his electoral intentions known to The Saline Post is Brian Woodruff.
There may be other candidates. According to Board of Education President Tim Austin, there were several prospective candidates at the board’s recent “How to Run for School Board” workshop.
The deadline to file to run for office is 4 p.m., July 24.
