December 5, 2018

STAMFORD — Andy George has been named the new president of the Stamford Board of Education.

George was elected president Tuesday night, replacing David Mannis who lost his bid for re-election.

Jackie Pioli, a family advocate and Stamford parent who beat Mannis in his run for a second term, was also sworn onto the board at the same meeting by Mayor David Martin. Mannis and Pioli went head-to-head last month for the sole available Democratic seat on the board with Pioli winning by about 2,000 votes.

Republican incumbents Mike Altamura and Frank Cerasoli were also sworn in for their second terms on the board.

In addition to electing George as the board chair, board members selected Jennienne Burke to serve as vice president and Altamura to continue serving as secretary. Board member Nicola Tarzia will continue serving as assistant secretary.
