The Westport Board of Education has selected Michael McGovern to fill the unexpired term of Lewis Brey who resigned because he is moving out of town.
The board, at a meeting Tuesday night, also voted to appoint Jim Marpe to replace Brey as secretary of the board. Brey had 30 months remaining in his term.
All votes were unanimous except that Marpe abstained from voting for himself as secretary. Mark Mathias was absent.
Linda Merk-Gould and Marpe were the only Republicans left on the board after Brey’s resignation. By Town Charter, the selection of a replacement had to come from Republican ranks.
