Plymouth-Canton School Board Appoints Kim Crouch as Trustee

Crouch will fill vacancy left by former board member Barry Simescu.

The Plymouth-Canton Board of Education on Tuesday appointed Kim Crouch as trustee.

Crouch will fill the vacancy left by former board member Barry Simesecu, who resigned in January, citing increased responsibilities at work.

Crouch, a General Motors attorney and mother in the district, was one of four finalists who interviewed Tuesday with board members. The other finalists included Julie Rowe, Jeff Ames and Brian Jansen. 

"I'm excited to be on the board," Crouch said. "It's a good opportunity to have more parental input on the board."

Crouch praised the other candidates seeking the seat.

"I thought that they had really good candidates," she said. "It was just kind of a matter of what they were looking for and who they thought would fit, and I thought I had things to offer from having three kids in the district to being an attorney to having been really involved in the community."

Crouch said she brings a collaborative work style to the board.

"If I have to disagree, I do it without being disagreeable," she said.

I read through her website. And I have to admit, it makes me nervous that she has a platform that only encompasses the interests of a single race community. In fact. I am not sure if someone from my Indian community had a single race agenda, it would be appropriate for a community that prides itself as being diverse. That type of mindset is simply outdated for this area, considering there are multiple races that flourish within the community. It only represents an old-school, self-serving attitude that has been a road block for progression. This is not the community for such a devolved agenda. Thank you, "someone" for posting her website. I think there should be a reconsideration for her appointment.

All. Know the people you vote into positions of power. These are the people who shape the future of our community. I noticed Kim took down her web page yesterday. I also noticed she’s working on updating it today. (Kim must have agreed with me without being agreeable.) If you missed the action, you can always use www.google.com to search for cached pages of her website. And if that all of a sudden stops working, there’s some content below from her page that I grabbed for all of you to see.

Raj's comment has been removed. It's fine to discuss the merits of a public official, but let's refrain from assumptions or speculation.
