Tom Sirard, an Enfield (Conn.) Board of Education member from 2009 to 2011, was re-appointed to that board at Monday night's Town Council meeting. A Republican vacancy exists on the board due to the recent resignation of past vice chairman Chuck Johnson. The town charter calls for a replacement to be designated by the council.
"I am experienced, and can provide proven skills to the smooth, continued functioning of the BOE," Sirard wrote in his application for the post. "I am a dedicated, compassionate volunteer in town. I remain willing to serve and have earned the trust and respect of many of Enfield's residents."
