The Baldwin-Whitehall school director was interrupted a week ago.
At a Baldwin-Whitehall School Board meeting on Wednesday, board President Nancy Sciulli DiNardo interrupted fellow board member Nancy Lee Crowder while Crowder was explaining the credentials of her own nominee for a vacancy on the board. Crowder halted her explanation but ultimately nominated a "Karen Brown." Brown failed to earn appointment to the board by receiving only one "yes" vote—from Crowder. Instead, longtime B-W School Board member and former state Rep. Martin Michael Schmotzer rejoined the board by a 5-3 vote. The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch asked Crowder for her full remarks.

The board voted, 5-3, to select Martin Schmotzer after board Second Vice President Diana Kazour motioned to appoint him. First Vice President Kevin J. Fischer seconded that motion.
