New Member of the Board

“Former Oregon Mayor Michael Dansack, Jr., has been named by the governing board to serve a two-year seat on the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing panel,” per The Toledo Blade.

A lawyer, Mr. Dansack was appointed to fill my vacant seat.  I believe the boards choice was a good one and hope that with his experience he can make a difference.

About Judy Hansen

I have lived in many cities in the US and even lived in Calgary,Alberta Canada. But I always seem to end up where my life began in Toledo, Ohio. I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, sister, aunt, and I'll be your best friend!

  1. It’s unfortunate that The Blade continues to provide either no or very little coverage (and incorrect coverage at that) to the LCESC.
    The continuous Blade inaccuracies are exemplified in the story being cited in that The Blade uses phrases that are inaccurate. Those phrases are: “Lucas County Educational Service Center governing panel,” “a two-year seat ,” and “Mr. Dansack was appointed to fill the expired term of Judy Hansen.” First off, it is not the “Lucas County Educational Service Center governing panel” – it is the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing Board. The other inacuracies involve additional poor wording. It was not the expired term of Judy Hansen; it was an open seat that was created when no one ran for election to the open seat on the LCESC Governing Board. The Blade gives the impression that the position is one that is normally held by means of a two-year appointment and that Judy Hansen was not re-appointed. The fact of the matter is that the position is one which is an elected position and it is of a four year term. This appointment was necessary because no one sought election to the position; consequently, the LCESC Governing Board had 30 days according to state statute in which to appoint someone to the position until the next scheduled election for the LCESC which has 5 positions of staggered 4-year terms filled by elections every two years (3 one time and 2 the other time).
    Prior to the filing deadline and the election itself, The Blade failed to report on the LCESC Governing Board candidates and/or lack thereof.

    That said, I congratulate Mike Dansack and wish him well; I am sure he will do a fine job.
