Winding Down - What's Next?

This should only be the middle of the school year but it feels like the end, with the district's top administrators on their way out. Searches are on for a new superintendent and high school principal. The district will soon also need a new board secretary/business administrator. The board approved the title of assistant business administrator, for an added focus on fiscal matters, but that post must also be filled.

On the city side, Chief Financial Officer Peter Sepelya is leaving and the search is on for his successor. This is a key position, but Sepelya also brought to it a deep understanding of Plainfield as a municipal entity. It's the only urban center in a sea of suburbs and has its own special fiscal situation.

Who will fill all these posts? In coming weeks or months, we will find out. Besides bringing the skills of their professions, we hope the new people will "get" Plainfield and appreciate its unique personality.
