Newly appointed school board member steps down


GREENFIELD — The search is on for a fifth Greenfield-Central School Board member – again.

New board members took their oaths of office at the first meeting of the year Monday, but one member was unexpectedly absent from the proceedings.

Willie McKinney, who was appointed last month to replace an outgoing board member, stepped down from the position hours before what would have been his first meeting.

Superintendent Linda Gellert said McKinney called her office Monday afternoon to ask how to vacate the position, then sent a follow-up email stating that “after much thought and unforeseen circumstances,” he had decided to decline the appointment.

He apologized for the inconvenience but offered no further explanation. McKinney could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
