The Somerville School Committee will interview four candidates in its effort to fill the vacant seat in Ward 1, which represents East Somerville on the committee.
Out of 10 applicants who expressed interest in filling the position, the School Committee selected four finalists:
- Bonny Carroll
- Ben Echevarria
- Steven Roix
- Yvette Verdieu
The School Committee will hold a public hearing about the matter on Jan. 22, and after the hearing committee members will conduct the interviews.
The School Committee is accepting from the public suggested questions to ask during the interviews. Anyone with a question may email Mary Jo Rossetti, chair of the School Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The public hearing and interviews will take place at the Capuano Early Childhood Center, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The School Committee plans to fill the Ward 1 seat, which became vacant when the previous representative, Maureen Bastardi, was appointed to the Somerville Board of Aldermen, by Feb. 4.
