BOE Filing Deadline Looms

School board candidates have until 4 p.m. Monday to file petitions for three three-year seats and one two-year unexpired term.

Incumbents whose terms are up in April are Rasheed Abdul-Haqq, Patricia Barksdale and Lisa Logan-Leach. The unexpired term is due to the resignation of Vickey Sheppard, who won election last April. Appointee Joseph Ruffin Sr. is holding the seat until the April 21 election.

Last year, only five candidates filed for three seats and all the incumbents won re-election. Click here for a story on the 2008 reorganization where winners were sworn in.

Petitions must be returned to Business Administrator Gary Ottmann at the Administration Building, 1200 Myrtle Ave., by 4 p.m. Monday.
