The first meeting of the School Board Nominating Commission of Anne Arundel County (SBNC) for the 2010 election cycle will take place on Monday, January 25, at 7:00 pm at Anne Arundel Community College, West Campus (Arnold) in CADE 219. This year the second term of school board member Ned Carey (district 31) expires. Carey was appointed in 2002, after another school board member died while in office. He was reappointed in 2005. Although school board members are generally only allowed to serve two terms, the special circumstances of his appointment apparently allow him to serve a third term. The first term of school board member Enrique Melendez (district 30) also expires. In addition, school board member Victor Bernson (district 33), whose terms expires next year, has been publicly exploring a candidacy for the Maryland Senate. The SBNC must nominate at least two candidates for each open school board member position, and the Governor must select one of the nominees by July 1, when new school board members take office. The agenda for the January 25 meeting only covers administrative matters and public testimony will not be allowed.
