• Two Candidates Likely Headed to Board of Education


    It appears that Westminster High School graduates Joe Davidek and Ryan McCoy will join the District 50 Board of Education following November’s election. Davidek and McCoy both qualified for the ballot after gathering more than enough signatures from registered voters.

    The deadline has now passed for other candidates to place their names on the ballot, all but guaranteeing the two men will be elected.

    Board President Marilyn Flachman is unable to run again because of term limits and Sharon Whitehair, who was elected in 2009, chose not to run for reelection.

    The presumed election of Davidek and McCoy would mean that every member of the Board of Education is a graduate of Westminster High School.

    Dino Valente, Bob Landgraf and Ruben Pacheco were all elected to the board in 2011.

    The Insider will have more about Davidek and McCoy in future issues.
