Names to know for RC School Board election

One incumbent and three new faces are running for Rush City School Board in the November election.

Matt Perreault, Teri Umbreit, Scott Anderson, incumbent Brian Anderson and three write-in spaces will be found on the ballot; voters will be prompted to select up to three for terms of four years each.

Justin Wood, who was appointed to the school board last May due to Channa Tastsides’ resignation, recently announced his withdrawal from the election. He cited a conflict with his regular, full-time job as the reason, though he will fulfill the remaining time on his current seat that ends Dec. 31, 2013.

Still, due to the timing of his announcement and election-related deadlines, voters may still see Wood’s name on the voting ballot.

Carol Cook, also a current board member, did not file for re-election. She served from 2006-09 and again with a second term beginning in 2010.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 5, and the polling place will be open from noon to 8 p.m. at Rush City High School. Winners will take the oath of office to start their new terms in January 2014.
