Eleven candidates sign up for MDD board
Eleven persons have signed up as candidates for the “new” Rockdale Municipal District to be appointed by the city council.
They are Malda Burns, Deta Donnelly, Dr. Lucille Estell, Bernie Finley, Kim Finley, Tom Fisher, Elaine Gerren, Mark Jackson, Jenny Lehmkuhl, Bobby Pelzel and Collier Perry.
Two of the candidates, Jackson and Pelzel, are also members of the current MDD board.
Other members are Mitul Patel and Jim Scott.
That board will be dissolved when the new MDD board takes effect.
The city council will appoint up to seven members to the new board.
First interviews were Thursday and additional interview sessions are set for Sept. 14 and 21.
