The West Ada School District Board of Trustees has found a new member.

The board voted tonight to appoint Rene Ozuna as the Zone 5 representative to fill the seat left open by Russ Joki after his resignation.

Ozuna has three kids who attend school in the district.  She also served on the school boundary committee.

She says among the issues she hopes to focus on is how new technology is implemented in the district and ways to fund the ongoing growth the district faces.

Ozuna also said numerous times tonight she is against recall efforts underway against members of the board.  Chair Tina Dean and Trustee Carol Sayles both face recall in a vote on May 17th.  Former board members Joki and Julie Madsen had also faced that recall before choosing to resign from the board.
