Ex-mayor Aultman named to Board of Education

CLINTON — Former Clinton Mayor Rosemary Aultman has been appointed to the state Board of Education.

House Speaker Philip Gunn announced his appointment Monday. He said Aultman will serve as his recess appointment to the board through Dec. 31.

Aultman served as mayor in Clinton for 20 years. Gunn says he worked with Aultman while he served on the Clinton School Board.

Gunn said nothing about what he would do about an appointment after the first of the year.

Aultman will replace Martha “Jackie” Murphy of Rienzi, whose term expired June 30.

On the final day of the 2013 session, the Senate Education Committee rejected Gunn’s nomination of charter schools advocate Joel Bomgar to the Board of Education to replace Murphy. Some senators questioned Bomgar’s commitment to public schools.
