Sole candidate applies for Hartselle school board
By Deangelo McDaniel
HARTSELLE — Unless others apply, city leaders may have no problem replacing Greg Cain on the Hartselle city school board.
Since announcing almost a week ago that Hartselle was accepting applications, the council has received one.
Council President Kenny Thompson said the city will accept applications through Dec. 15 at City Hall.
“If we get more than one application, we’ll do the interviews after Christmas,” he said.
Cain, R-Hartselle, submitted his resignation after Morgan County voters elected him probate judge in November’s general election.
He takes office Jan. 16 and will serve on the Hartselle board through Dec. 31.
Cain succeeds longtime Probate Judge Bobby Day, who is retiring and who lost his bid for state senator to corporate attorney Arthur Orr.
The council appointed Cain to a five-year term on the Hartselle school board in June 2003. His replacement will serve until June 2008.
Saying she wants to see Hartselle continue to be a strong leader in education, Nicole Mashburn submitted her application Monday.
This will be this city administration’s fourth school board appointment. It has appointed Jennifer Sittason to serve the balance of Ronnie Abercrombie’s term and re-appointed Kathy White Goodwin and Jeff Gray for second five-year terms.
Nicole Mashburn has a doctorate in physiology from The University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is the mother of a fifth-grade Barkley Bridge Elementary student and has resided in Hartselle for almost 10 years. She works at Family Health of Hartselle and is married to Dr. K. Eric Mashburn.
