BREAKING: Blank named permanent School Superintendent

October 8th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

In a stunning action Tuesday night, the Allegany County Board of Education voted 3-2 to appoint interim superintendent Jeff Blank as the permanent superintendent, opting not to conduct a search. Blank was named interim just two months ago replacing Dr David Cox who resigned to take a position in Tennessee. The action occured moments after board member Tammy Fraley advocated that a national search be conducted and that community meetings be held prior to any final decisions. At the time board vice president David Bohn praised the early performance of Blank, pointed to the cost of conducting a national search and made a motion that Blank be given a four year contract. The vote was 3-2 with Bohn, board president Bob Farrell and Wayne Foote in favor; whole members Tammy Fraley and Deb Frank voted against.

      Jeff Blank is a fine fellow but my God, this is not the way it’s supposed to be done. The next thing you know Bohn, Farrell, and Foote will vote themselves into lifetime appointments on the board and ban the teaching of Chinese because it’s a Communist plot to brainwash 10 year olds.

    Good man but this process should really be questioned. The sad reality is Mr. Blank’s ethics will now be attached to the majority of the BOE.
