Board looking for new president

The San Bruno Park School District is seeking a new board member to replace President Charles Zelnik, who is stepping down after nearly six years on the board, officials announced Thursday.

Board members voted Wednesday night to make a provisional appointment to serve the remainder of Zelnik’s term, which would have ended in November 2007.

Zelnik, a stay-at-home father of two with a background in construction and the automotive industry, said he decided to resign Aug. 9 in order to re-enter the work force now that his daughter is heading to college.

He said he still wants to participate in district affairs, particularly since he spent much of his time before coming on the board trying to secure annexation of the Portola Heights area of San Bruno into the school district.

Before the 2000 annexation, residents west of Skyline Boulevard in San Bruno were served by the Pacifica School District. Zelnik was appointed to the board shortly after annexation.

“It was great being able to go back to school again,” Zelnik said of his many field trips and coaching experiences. “Now’s the time to open a new chapter, though.”

Anyone older than 18 who is a registered voter, resident in the school district and who is not legally disqualified from holding civil office can hold the position, according to Superintendent David Hutt. The board will decide whom to appoint at a Sept. 27 meeting open to the public.
