WATERVILLE – The Waterville Board of Education is scheduled to poll Monday at least one candidate for vice president 2 released last month by Susan Reisert, who was moving to Belgrade.

Greg Bazakas, a social worker-therapist working in a private practice in Waterville, was the only person to date who had submitted a letter of interest to the board regarding headquarters.

Bazakas, who taught social sciences at Waterville High School from 1998 to 2005, said Thursday in a phone interview that he was considering serving on the school board for a while. He knows the school system, he said, and has three children who are either enrolled in Waterville schools or have been in the system.

"It's really good for them and it's an opportunity for me to be able to contribute in return," said Bazakas. "In my opinion, schools are a vital part of the community, so it's important."

Reisert, a Democrat, served on the board for four years. His three-year term ends in 2021.

The board of directors is made up of seven residents from the seven neighborhoods of the city. He will appoint a person to occupy the seat of Reisert until the holding of an election.

The meeting, at which the council should also elect a president, is scheduled for 5.30 pm. in the mid-day cafe at the Mid-Maine Technical Center. The council elects a president each year.

Democrat Sara Sylvester is the Chair of the Board of Directors, who has held this position since 2015. She has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2004.

On Monday, the chair will determine the composition of board committees, including the policy and program committees, according to Haley.
