BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Bakersfield City School District Board of Trustees has figured out how to replace one of its own after the recent resignation of Michael Horne.

On Tuesday night, the board held a meeting to discuss its options in replacing Horne, who resigned back in May.

District officials voted to replace Horne with his opponent from the last year's election, Russ Shuppert.

Horne represented Area 4 after defeating incumbent Russ Shuppert by 329 votes in the last election back in November.

Horne has not disclosed why he's resigning.
