School Board Seat
reported last week, the 6th district school board race was won by a
candidate who has moved out of state. Unfortunately, her departure took
place after it was too late to remove her name from the ballot.
Christie Allen Kreischer won the election but is now living in Indiana. She has been contacted by the election commission about her win and given her options. She may return to fill the seat or send a letter of intent not to return.
In an email to me, Ms Kreischer stated that she doesn't plan to return and will be sending a letter to the election commission this week of that intent.
It now appears that the school board seat will be on the November ballot if in fact Ms. Kreischer does send the letter and time permits to meet the qualifying deadlines for the November elections.
The other option if deadlines are not met would be for county commission to make an appointment to the board. That appointment would be till the next general election which wouldn't be till 2012.
