Retired police Chief Kevin Cashen will be undergoing a new public service starting in January. And he's looking forward to serving on the Norwalk City Schools board of education.
"Thank you to the voters who have provided me an opportunity for public service and working with the many professionals (who) provide our children's educational services," Cashen said.
Cashen was the top vote-getter in Tuesday's race to fill three spots. He received more votes (2,051 nods or almost 26 percent of the vote) than three incumbents. He will join Steve Linder and Rob Ludwig, both of whom were re-elected, to start their four-year terms in January. The other members of the board are John Lendrum and Ralph Ritzenthaler. Current board president Janet Broz failed to get re-elected.
A feature story about Cashen was published in Saturday's Norwalk Reflector.
