Perez named president of Tiffin City Board of Education, McBride sworn-in as new member




Perez, McBride

Tiffin City Board of Education member Victor Perez was elected president of the board Thursday evening.

Dr. Meagan McBride was also sworn-in as the board’s newest member after her November election victory.

Perez made headlines back in December after he spoke out regarding TCS Superintendent Gary Barber’s OVI arrest.

Perez said that former TCS Board President Andrew Gase “is not speaking for me” when Gase said in a statement that Barber is still “[our district’s] man.”

“I am not aware of any meeting where the board met to take this position, but this is not a surprise. Previously, when [Barber] was on [medical leave], there was a statement made that he had the support of the whole board. Again, I was not part of any discussions or board meeting for such a statement to be made,” Perez said.

Barber was pulled over by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper in Marion around 10:49 PM on Friday, November 29. Barber refused a sobriety test on-scene and was charged with OVI and lane violations. He wishes to take the case to trial.

The Tiffin City Board of Education now consists of President Victor Perez, Vice President Jeffrey Hoyda, Dr. Andrew Gase, Mr. Chris Widman, Dr. Meagan McBride, and Treasurer Sharon Perry.
