Former Rutherford County Commissioner Jeff Jordan is among the names being considered for a vacancy on the County School Board. The commission's Steering Committee must appoint someone to fill the vacancy left after David Nipper won a seat on the county commission. Jordan, a two-term commissioner in District 13 who did not seek re-election, was head of the Health and Education Committee during his last term. The committee approves funding for the school board, among other duties. He's also a retired educator.
Those living in commission districts 13, 15 and 16 comprise Zone 6, which is the zone Nipper once represented. There are two years remaining in the term. Those interested must submit their application to the county mayor's office in the courthouse. The Steering Committee will consider those applications at their meeting next week. The full commission will consider the committee's recommendation and approve Nipper's successor at their September 11th meeting.
