Ripon School Board Will Consider Vacancy

The Ripon Area School Board will hold a special meeting tonight to consider the vacancy created by the resignation of Dan Zimmerman. Governor Walker Thursday named Zimmerman as the Secretary of the Department of Veteran Affairs. The person that will be appointed by the board will serve until April of 2018, the date Zimmerman’s three-year term on the board was set to expire. The Board will meet at 6 p.m. in the Ripon High School Community Room to set up a timeline and review the process for filing the board vacancy.
