Mr. Baker

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) is accepting applications for a seat on the Board of Education — again to help us grow even stronger!

This is the third time this year that Baker has taken applications to fill a seat on the school board.

Baker’s office will accept applications until Sept. 19 to fill the seat vacated by Donna Hathaway-Beck (District 9).

Hathaway-Beck announced recently that she was resigning after serving nearly seven years on the board. She said she wanted to spend more time with her family. Today September 6, 2013 is her last day as a Prince George’s County Board Member of Education and we wish her well.

In July, Carletta Fellows (District 7) resigned from her seat. And earlier this year, Baker accepted applications from across the county after he was given authority to appoint three new members to the reconfigured board. Ms. Lyn J. Mundey has since been chosen to replace Ms. Fellows.

Applicants interested in the latest opening must live in District 9. Applications are available on the county’s Web site or at the County Administration Building.

Baker plans to name a replacement by the end of the month, according to Mr. Christian Rhodes, the county executive’s education adviser.

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) and the County Council are accepting applications for four new appointed positions on the Board of Education, county officials announced Saturday.

State lawmakers expanded the nine-member elected school board under a compromise bill that also allows Baker to hire the county’s next schools chief. Read more ~~~> school board positions

70% of the voters interviewed in PG County approve the job the County Executive Baker and other elected officials in Annapolis are doing. Let us support him and the county council to help select the right candidates,  the right next BOE Chair and the vice Chair person respectfully to help make proper changes.  Any choices excluding Verjeana Jacobs (her husband David is the package) as a leader in PGCPS is a greater advantage for our children. Kudos to the Maryland General assembly and Governor O’Malley!
