TOLEDO -- The Toledo Public School board has a new member. The board chose Bob Vasquez, who was then sworn in Friday morning.

Vasquez is the director of special projects for The Twelve, Inc., which is a social service agency for families.

The vote was three to one, with Darlene Fisher casting the dissenting vote. Vasquez says he's excited to work on the administrative side of a system he's very familiar with.

"I'm a lifelong resident of Toledo, and I'm a product of Toledo Public Schools, and I really believe in education and I really believe in our community," he says.

Vasquez says he's looking forward to Saturday's planned retreat for the board so he can get better acquainted with the other members. He says he's ready to get to work helping out students.
