Dixon Unified leaders selected a preschool educator and president of a PTO to replace Andrew Bloom, who resigned his trustee post in March.
On a unanimous vote Monday night during a special governing board meeting, four trustees picked Melissa Maseda and she was sworn in immediately by board president John Gabby.
Their decision, made in the Dixon City Council chamber, came after she and four other candidates offered personal statements, followed by a winnowing of the field to three finalists, all of whom were asked the same set of six questions.
Following the six questions, the board — besides Gabby, Caitlin O’Halloran, Guy Garcia and Joe DiPaola — “had very little deliberation,” Superintendent Brian Dolan said Tuesday.
