Filings slow for races on local school boards

Only five candidates have filed so far for school board seats in Bartholomew County.

County Clerk Jay Phelps announced the updated fillings this morning, saying that there are four seats up for election in Bartholomew Consolidated Schools and three seats open in Flat Rock-Hawcreek schools.

In BCSC, Rich Stenner has filed for re-election to the District 2 seat and Kathy Dayhoff-Dwyer is seeking re-election to the District 6 seat. No one has filed yet for District 1 or District 4 races.

In northeastern Bartholomew County, Chad Miller is seeking the Flatrock District seat, John Harker is running for re-election to the Hawcreek District seat and Pat Walters is running again as an at-large candidate.

The deadline to file for school board races is noon on Friday, Aug. 24th, Phelps says.
