Eric Lea

Redmond School Board chair Michael Summers swears in Eric Lea as the newest member of the board on Jan. 25 at the district offices in Redmond.

The Redmond School Board appointed Eric Lea, a resident of Redmond, to fill the vacated seat of Bob Perry at their Jan. 25 board meeting.

Lea, a clinical researcher and a co-founder of Southwest Charter School in Portland, will serve the remainder of Perry’s term until June 30 after the board voted unanimously on his appointment. Lea intends to run for and keep the seat when it goes back up for grabs in the May election.
