The Travis School District’s governing board members unanimously appointed Russ Barrington to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Angela Weinzinger in September, the district reports.
Barrington was one of three applicants. The others were former Foxboro Elementary principal Lisa Eckhoff and former board member John Dickerson. Dickerson submitted his resignation effective minutes prior to the meeting in order to be considered. His term was set to end next month.
More than 2,000 votes Barrington received in last week’s election was the deciding factor as the remaining two board members, and presiding Solano County Board of Education Trustee Michelle Coleman, cast their votes.
