Former Ottawa High building trades teacher running for school board

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2014

It’s long been rumored that former building trades instructor Dave Keely would run for school board in Ottawa. His wife Angie has made it official.

She announced during Monday night’s Ottawa School Board meeting that her husband Dave intends to run for a board seat. The current school board cut Keely earlier this year which set off a public outcry and large student demonstration.

Board members and administrators say it was a budget cut and numbers have been going down in the building trades. They’ve since worked out agreements to send building trades students to L-P and Sandwich.

Keely meanwhile found a job at United Meters in Morris.
