In a statement read by Westfield Board of Education President Rich Mattessich, Board Vice President David Finn resigned from his position effective immediately, citing an "urgent family medical matter."
Mattessich and fellow Board members Mitch Slater and Ginny Leiz thanked him for his three-and-a-half years of service.
The Board voted unanimously to elect Rosanne Kurstedt vice president. Finn's term was scheduled to end in January and he was not seeking re-election. As such, the Union County Superintendent said the Board does not need to fill the vacant seat in the interim. It will serve as an eight-member board until then.
Check back with Patch tomorrow for additional details and more from tonight's meeting.
