Young, Demas chosen for
RCS Board of Education

Observer Staff Writer
      Candidates have been selected by voters in the Romeo Community Schools district to fill two six-year seats on the Board of Education.
       Following the Nov. 6 election, candidates Chris Young and Gus Demas will serve on the board. Demas will re-claim his spot on the board while Young will take the vacancy left by outgoing Trustee Terry Davis.
       Of the five candidates, Young garnered the most votes with 5,869 votes (32.2 percent). He said he was surrpised to have collected as many votes as he did, but is nonetheless appreciative.
       "It really shows that the communtiy is open for building better communication and seeing a change," he said. "I am truly grateful to the community and everyone that's been supporting me."
       He said he plans to approach each decision with an open mind and hopes to improve communications between the board and the community as well as with staff and administration.
       Next in line was Demas with 5,118 votes (28.1 percent). He, too, expressed his gratefulness and plans on continuing to use his experience to serve the community.
       "I'm certainly looking forward to working with other members, new members and the standing members," he said. "I think we have a great team, I'm looking forward to working with this dedicated team."
       He said his goals will continue to be prioritizing and balancing the budget with the limited resources that are available to the district.
       The remaining candidates vying for the two spots were Sebastian Previti (3,141 votes, 17.2 percent), Lee Verbouw (2,176 votes, 11.9 percent) and Wayne Conner II (1,938 votes, 10.6 percent).
