Windsor Town Board chooses applicant to fill District 2 seat
June 6, 2017
After about 20 minutes of deliberation Monday night, the Windsor Town Board came to a consensus that Cindy Scheuerman would be the best fit of eight applicants the board interviewed to fill Christian Morgan's District 2 seat.
A resolution appointing Scheuerman will be on the agenda for next Monday's meeting.
Scheuerman has served on the Windsor Board of Adjustments and Appeals for more than five years, and the board felt her experience will serve her well as a new town board member.
"I would love to have her on my board," said Morgan.
Board members chose their top three candidates, and Scheuerman was the only one to be on all members' list.
"I'm just looking forward to learning everything I can so I can be ready to be a productive and positive member of the town board," Scheuerman said Tuesday morning.
While she knows there will be a learning curve, Scheuerman said she is looking forward to an orientation meeting with the town manager and town attorney. Her time on the Board of Adjustments and Appeals, she said, will help her in her new role as she is familiar with policy-based and quasi-judicial actions, as well as the public hearing process.
Although her family has lived in Windsor for six years, Scheuerman said her children have been attending Windsor schools since her family lived in Greeley, and she has volunteered with the Windsor-Severance Re-4 School District in the past.
Now, Scheuerman said, she is ready to get started.
"I was very excited by the news," she said.
The Windsor Town Board has appointed residents to three seats since 2010, including Scheuerman, and will have to decide if it wants to fill the seat that will soon be left vacant by board member Brenden Boudreau.
Paul Rennemeyer is the other appointee on the board, brought in after Kristie Melendez was elected mayor, leaving the District 4 seat open.
Leon Kuhn did not attend his interview, and Kevin Bland was unable to attend.
