During the earlier primary election in March, the candidates were the top two finishers in a three-way race. None of the candidates secured a majority in that primary, necessitating this month’s runoff. The two candidates vied for the seat held by school board member Felton Williams, who is retiring after 16 years on the board.
The winning candidate will be seated on the board on Dec. 15 along with Doug Otto, who won the District 4 seat during the primary election in March. Otto will succeed board member Jon Meyer, who is retiring after 17 years on the board.
The school board’s five districts are divided by geographic area. Districts 1, 3 and 5 were not up for election this year.
