In special session on Wednesday morning, the Guthrie Board of Education appointed Ron Plagg to fill the vacancy of Ward #2. That vacancy was created when former board member Terry Pennington resigned on September 10, 2018. Since Pennington served less than half of his term, an election is required to fill the remainder of the term which runs through 2021. Plagg will serve until the election and may file to retain the seat . . .
