Somewhat overlooked with the election of CNV and DNV Mayors and Council, the school board election plays an important role in our community and it's being rumored that many of the incumbent school trustees will not be seeking re-election in 2014. The only candidates/incumbents that have been said are running again in 2014 are Francis Stratton and Cyndi Gerlach. Barry Forward is rumored to be seeking a Distinct council seat and Mike McGraw is just not running at all. It could mean as many as six of the eight seats will be up for grabs.
There has been little or no coverage in the North Shore News about the looming School Trustee vacancies probably because they are waiting for the nomination deadline on October 10th.
