STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- Four years, four different Presidents. That’s what the Stevens Point Area Public School’s Board of Education will have after the April election. First term board member and President Terry Rothmann has apparently had enough after a little more than eight months on the board.
Rothmann filed his declaration of non-candidacy by Friday’s deadline. He was elected earlier this year to fill a mid term vacancy after Dwight Stevens and John Zellmer resigned from the board.
Becoming President was not easy. The Stevens Point Board of Education has a track record of unrest and disagreement among its members. At the April 22nd meeting, the board was unable to select its own President after 25 ballots and over six hours of discussion. It wasn’t until May 13th the board settled on Rothmann as President.
Board members Christina Scott, Bob Larson, and Jeff Presley also are up for re-election. Sam Levin and Alex Kochanowski have filed papers to be on the April 1st ballot. The filing deadline is January 7th. If more than eight candidates run for the four positions on the school board, the primary election will be Tuesday, February 18th.
