Even so, we were encouraged last week when school board members interviewed seven candidates wishing to complete Jesse’s term that runs through the end of 2014. The quality of the applicants is top notch. The candidates are, Craig Harris, Rick Holdrread, Roger Nafziger, Bill Rieth, Keith Goodman, Brad Miller and Gene Stutsman. We are grateful to these men for their willingness to step up to the plate and take a swing at bettering our community. We’re sure their primary professions keep them busy enough. Serving on the school board won’t do any favors for their free time.
This school board seat is an important position in this community. We’re confident the six current school trustees will pick the right person to fill out their board and help keep a good thing going.
