In a divided vote, the Las Vegas City Schools board tapped the superintendent of the Questa school district to take that position here.
Richard Romero beat four other finalists for the position, including Associate Superintendent Barbara Perea Casey, who criticized the school board for its decision. After making the decision, a couple of board members exchanged angry words.
Romero will replace Superintendent Pete Campos, who is becoming Luna Community College’s president on July 1. The board has yet to decide on a salary for Romero.
