Tom Kelly will return to the North Hills school board.

Board members voted 5-0 with three abstentions Thursday to appoint Mr. Kelly to the seat vacated when Tom Baker was elected to Allegheny County Council.

Voting for Mr. Kelly, who previously served on the board for eight years, were members Jeff Meyer, Annette Giovengo Nolish, Lou Nudi, Mike Yeomans and President Ed Wielgus. Arlene Bender, Joe Muha and Kathy Reid abstained.

Mr. Muha and Mrs. Reid said the board should choose one of the three unsuccessful candidates from the November election.

Mr. Kelly will be sworn in during a special meeting Wednesday, and will serve until December 2015.

“I want to assure the staff and residents that I’ve always tried to move the district forward, yet keep it within our financial means and I certainly want to continue to do that,” he said.
