Jim Potter, a 1981 Clintondale alumnus, was selected Monday night to become the newest member of the Clintondale Community School District Board of Education.
Potter fills the vacancy until November 2022. He replaces Kary Davidson, who resigned after serving the board for five months. This is the second time Potter has been appointed to fill a role on the Board. Previously, he was selected to finish Ron Fisher’s term. Mr. Fisher died in March 2020.
A longtime resident of Clinton Township, Potter says he has no personal agenda for wanting to return to the Board. Instead, he says, his intimate knowledge and love for the district is what brought him back.
“I look forward to renewing the productive relationship that was started and cultivated last year with Clintondale,” Potter said.
Potter, a regional sales manager for a national auto supply company, stressed his abilities to work collaboratively and with teams to solve problems.
“My hope is to be a great team member, and to make a difference in the lives of our students,” Potter said. “My experience as a former Board of Education member will help guide me in my decision-making process, and working for the overall good of our Clintondale students and staff.”
