The Board of Directors for Educational Service District 112 has selected LeAnne M. Bremer as its newest member of the board. Bremer will represent Region 4, which includes Ridgefield, northern Vancouver and portions of Battle Ground school districts. She replaces Trish Kellogg, who resigned from the board in April after eleven years of service to the organization.
Bremer is a partner at the Miller Nash Graham and Dunn legal firm in Vancouver, where the focus of her practice is land use law, real estate and government affairs. “As a strong proponent of public education, I am honored to be on the ESD 112 Board, and look forward to making a positive contribution to the organization and the community at large,” said Bremer.
ESD 112 Superintendent Tim Merlino said the board went through a thorough application and interview process and unanimously selected Bremer for the position. “We’re excited to welcome her to the ESD board and appreciate her dedication to serving alongside our veteran ESD 112 board members,” said Merlino.
Current Board President Ann Campbell said “Ms. Bremer will be such a great addition to our board. We were impressed with her passion for education and her knowledge of the significant role ESDs play in the state’s education system.”
ESD board members are volunteers who attend monthly meetings held at the ESD headquarters in Vancouver. The Director District #4 position appointment expires in January 2022. However, because there is a board election in the fall of 2019, Bremer will be required to run for election in November to fulfill the remaining two years of her term, through 2022.
Bremer and her husband Bob Mayfield have two daughters who graduated from Ridgefield High School. Beatrice attends Lewis and Clark Law School and younger daughter Rosie attends New York University.
She will be sworn in at the next ESD 112 board meeting on June 24 at 3:00 p.m.
