Roane County Commission’s attempt to appoint former Kingston football coach Vic King to the vacant District 5/6 Board of Education seat didn’t go as planned.
“There’s really not a vacancy legally at this time,” Commission Chairman James Brummett said.
Marjorie Earick was elected to a four-year term in District 5/6 last August. She resigned last month for personal reasons.
The commission was gearing up to vote King in at Monday’s meeting, but County Attorney Tom McFarland asked Brummett to take a short break.
