Keating selected to join Middletown School Board

Middletown Area School Board during its Monday, Nov. 21, meeting voted to appoint Brian Keating of Lower Swatara Township to the board to replace Michael S. Richards of Royalton, who resigned from the board on Oct. 24.

Keating, of the 1000 block of Butter Churn Road, was one of five district residents who applied to fill the seat. The others were Michael Knaub of the first block of Mountain View Road in Lower Swatara Township, Darnell Montgomery of the 1700 block of Lakeside Drive in Lower Swatara Township, Jennifer Brown-Sweeney of the 1800 block of O'Hara Lane in Lower Swatara Township, and Julie Gomboc-Turyan of the 900 block of Adelia Street in Middletown.

Montgomery and Keating were both nominated by members of the school board, with the vote going 4-2 for Keating. 

Members voting for Keating were Mike Corradi, Christopher Lupp, Jennifer Scott and Linda Mehaffie.

Board members President Newton Davis and Vice President David John both voted for Montgomery. Board members Mel Fager and Terry Gilman were absent.

A second vote was taken because by law five votes are needed to appoint a new member. Davis and John both changed their vote to support Keating to make it unanimous, 6-0.

Richards had resigned unexpectedly after serving on the board for 21 years. He had been reelected in 2015.

Keating will now serve through November 2017. Voters in 2017 will choose who serves out the remaining two years of Richards’ term through the end of 2019.
