With Tuesday’s qualifying deadline for School Board having come and gone, competitive races are set in all three districts (2, 3 and 6) that will be on the ballot this fall. Two districts will produce a newcomer regardless of who wins, as current trustees Steve Anderson and Mac McDowell are stepping down. In Election District 3 incumbent Arthur Reynolds will face a challenge from Kim Farson of Vernon Hill, making her first try for public office.
