School board may lose member

January 19, 2006

It won't happen yet, but Lansing School Board will probably lose a member before its next election in 2007.

Karalin Alsdurf is selling her house in Lansing and plans to move to Lenexa for personal reasons, she said Tuesday.

The timing of her move hinges upon the sale of her house and the completion of one she is building, she said.

State law requires school board members to live in the district in which they serve, which means Alsdurf would have to resign once the move is completed.

"I won't resign until I actually move," she said.

Coincidentally enough, Alsdurf was appointed in August 2004 to fill a seat vacated by board member Michelle Fattig-Smith, who had moved out of the district.

Alsdurf kept her position on the school board by running unopposed for the remaining two years of Fattig-Smith's term in April 2005.

Alsdurf said she would keep her job as executive director of Kansas City Kansas Community College-Leavenworth Center despite her move into Johnson County.
