KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Saying that since the voters elected him to a three year term he should serve the full three years, embattled Kenosha Unified School Board member Eric Meadows rallied supporters Tuesday.
The school board plans to vacate Meadows’ seat at the end of the board’s current term, a move they say is necessary since the April 2022 election to the seat Meadows now occupies should have only been for a single year, completing a previous term.
The election was not notified to the public correctly last year in what’s being called a “clerical error.”
Meadows has hired an attorney and sent a cease and desist order to the district.
He may seek litigation.
A special school board meeting is set for February 20th to appoint a candidate to fill the seat beginning in the board’s new term.
Meadows could be reappointed to the seat.
