Two members, already elected, will fill vacancies on board

Gov. Martin O'Malley has appointed Robert Frisch and Rick Grambo to the Harford County Board of Education. The appointees were two of the three candidates elected to the board last month and would have otherwise begun their four-year terms July 1. But with the recent resignations of two longtime members, the governor opted to move up their installation.

"We have a lot of key issues to work on, including elementary school redistricting," said Teresa D. Kranefeld, schools spokeswoman. "We need a full slate so that we have continuity on the board."

The two appointees will serve at large until July 1, when they will take their elected seats and serve their respective districts.

Grambo, 37, will represent District D, the North Harford area, where one of his two children attends elementary school. He is an electrical engineer and project manager with Pritchard Brown in Baltimore and had been a trade school instructor in Baltimore County.

Frisch, 47, a former Baltimore police officer who teaches in Baltimore County, will represent District A, covering the Edgewood and Joppa areas, where his two sons attend elementary and middle school.

Both men are scheduled to be sworn in before the Dec. 13 school board meeting. That will bring the board to its full contingent of six voting members and a student representative.
