The Gateway school board elected a new president and vice president at its reorganizational meeting Dec. 4.

Mary Beth Cirucci will now serve as the board’s president. She received six votes to top School Director John Ritter, who got three votes from directors Val Warning, George Lapcevich and himself.

Cirucci replaces former board president Scott Williams, who served in the role for two years. Cirucci was elected as vice president in December 2017 and was first elected in 2015.

Rick McIntyre, elected in 2017, won with five votes to top former vice president Cirucci, who served in the role for a year. School directors George Lapcevich, Val Warning, Jack Bova and John Ritter each cast a vote for Ritter to be vice president.

The board will meet on the second and third Tuesday of each month starting in January.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
