O’FALLON – Central School District 104 has a new board member. David Swaney was sworn in on Monday evening at their regular September board meeting.

At the August board meeting, long time board member and former board president Chris Monroe stepped down from his position, saying he could “no longer be an effective board member due, in large part, to decisions and collective actions of this board,” and citing “inability of the board to make unbiased decisions.”

Monroe would have been up for reelection in April of 2019, so Swaney will need to run at that point to hold on to his seat.

Swaney has triplets in first grade at Central Elementary School and is looking forward to being involved with the school board.
