In their annual December rite, Vacaville Unified trustees on Thursday elected new officers for one-year terms, welcomed the newest member to the governing board, Tracee Stacy, and heard the 2016-17 first interim budget report.
Vacaville Supervisor John Vasquez administered the oath of office to Stacy, publisher of Prime Time magazine and a mental health counselor. She immediately took her seat on the dais. Stacy was unopposed during the fall election campaign, running for a seat vacated by Nolan Sullivan, and was automatically elected.
But Stacy was not the only trustee who raised their right hand and recited the oath of office.
Shortly afterward, Superintendent Jane Shamieh administered the oath to four other trustees: John Jansen, Shawn Windham, Sherie Mahlberg and Michael Kitzes. Like Stacy, they were unopposed during the fall election campaign and, thus, were automatically elected.
