Kachel appointed prior to primary win Ted Kachel
The school board also voted to appoint Ephrata resident Ted Kachel to replace former board member Allyson Snyder, who resigned for medical reasons at last month’s meeting.
Kachel, who resides in Ephrata with his wife Beth and three children Lauren, Abby and Denton, has been active in the school district as a classroom volunteer and field trip chaperone. He has also been active in the community as a youth soccer coach and with his church Bible School program. Employed by Hurst Produce in Ephrata, Kachel received one vote less than a unanimous vote. He will fill the remaining term of Snyder and the appointment will expire on Nov. 30.
Board member Kay Kurtz declined to vote. Prior to vote taking Kurtz said that she had nothing against Kachel personally, but questioned the timing of appointing him tonight when he is on the ballot tomorrow. She said she felt it was unfair to the other candidates.
Both Kurtz and Kachel were among the top five vote-getters of those running for a four-year term on school board. Judy Beiler, and new comers Tim Stauffer and Chris Weber were the other top vote-getters while incumbent Marty Harmes, who was not endorsed by the GOP, did not make the top five.
