TCAPS Officially Approves Appointment of Interim Board Member

Traverse City Area Public Schools held another special meeting Wednesday. It comes as a do-over on the vote for a board member’s replacement.

Ben McGuire

Vice president Doris Ellery stepped down last month. The district interviewed nine candidates at a meeting Monday and voted to swear in community member Benjamin McGuire.

But the district’s legal team said the vote was illegal. The board voted 3 to 2 on Monday, but the district’s lawyer said a true majority was needed, which was four members. One member was absent and so they re-voted today to officially swear McGuire in. He will serve until December 2020.
