Henrico, Va. Sept. 7, 2018 – The Henrico County School Board will hold a public hearing Thursday to get input from citizens on finalists for the Board’s vacant Tuckahoe District seat.

“We need to hear from the public,” said Micky Ogburn, School Board chair and Three Chopt District representative. “It’s their opportunity to weigh in on what qualities are important and who they want as their representative from the Tuckahoe District.”

Henrico County citizens are invited to speak about the vacancy at the 4 p.m. hearing, which will follow the Board’s work session. Members of the public will have four minutes each to address the Board. Citizens may sign up in advance to speak at the public hearing by contacting Debbie Ward, clerk of the School Board, at 804-652-3808 or by emailing dnward@henrico.k12.va.us.
