Mum's the word on the MPUSD superintendent search

And perhaps that's a good thing.

Scuttlebutt's eerily quiet about the superintendent's search at Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. By now, trustees have likely zeroed in their preferred candidate, but who he or she is, nobody's saying.

Five members from the community -- Allyson Schweifler from the Monterey Bay Teacher's Association, Deborah Maxwell from the California State Employees Association, Debbie Weiss representing Monterey, Juan Sanchez representing Seaside, and Terry Seigrist from Marina -- were present to interview the final candidate or finalists. Ruthie Watts was scheduled to represent Seaside, but she had to pull out because of a death in the family.

The fact that I haven't heard anything yet -- or nothing I can report on, I'm not saying anything -- could be a good thing. It means the finalist has not raised enough red flags to warrant the watchful eye of the press take a look. Which means that come April 22 we could have a new superintendent at MPUSD. 

That would be something, wouldn't it? Stay tuned.
