There is a K-12 trustee vacancy on the Missoula County School Board. This is the vacancy created by the resignation of Nancy Hirning. Applications to temporarily fill that post are due on Wednesday.

Hirning resigned last month, blaming it on the Missoulian’s coverage of Hirning in the whole “The Story of Stuff” controversy. (4&20 has a few pieces on the controversy – here and here, for a start.)

Anyways….application deadline is 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. The Missoula County Public School Board’s website has an information page with step-by-step instructions for making application.

School Boards wield a pretty wide swath of power – beginning with taxation. It’s an often overlooked position in the community until some controversy is stirred up, like, say – “The Story of Stuff.”

There were 10 applicants the last go-around, with the resignation of Jenda Hemphill back in March.Many I wouldn’t mind seeking to make another go at it.

So there’s 3 days to go, Missoulians…time to recruit that neighbor or jump into the river yourself. No time better than the present, right?
