How Will Turmoil on the Board Affect Search for New Commissioner?

A number of names have surfaced of possible candidates for the position left open by Bob Corkins' resignation. Here's a question for readers: Will the board be able to hire the best candidate available given that control of the school board could shift again two years from now?

Will a top flight candidate for the commissioner's job want to take on all the headaches of dealing with a conservative faction that's spoiling for a fight after its candidate was forced to resign and is already positioning itself for the next election?

Abrams, Willard, Bacon, and Martin will undoubtedly oppose whoever moderates choose to fill the commissioner's job, and may find themselves in a position to do something about it if moderates lose control in a future election.

Your thoughts?
