Smith-Blum elected president of Seattle School Board

In a 4-3 vote, the Seattle School Board has selected Kay Smith-Blum as its next president. She’ll serve a one-year term.

Smith-Blum, who was the board’s vice president for the past year, replaces Michael DeBell.  She was supported  by the board’s newest members — Sharon Peaslee and Marty McLaren — as well as Betty Patu.

Smith-Blum, the president and CEO of the Butch Blum clothing store, joined the board in 2009 after many years as a Seattle Public Schools parent and school activist.

Board member Sherry Carr was also nominated as president, supported by DeBell and Harium Martin-Morris, but fell one vote short.

Betty Patu, who has also served since 2009, was unanimously elected vice president, and Sharon Peaslee, who joined the board in 2011, was selected as the third member of the board’s executive committee, as member-at-large.
