Seven will seek school board seats

For the second consecutive election District 192 voters will have seven candidates to choose among.

In the final week of the district's election filing period Ron Groves Rebecca Keeler and Tera Lee joined Carol Kappes, Melissa Sauser, Brian Treakle and Veronica Walter on the ballot.

The filing period ended at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Bob Heman initially filed for re-election but later withdrew and resigned from the board. That leaves Walter as the only incumbent on the ballot. John Kampf, the other candidate up for election this fall, did not file.

Lee has been a regular presence at school board meetings lately, leading a parent push for smaller class sizes and more information about student-teacher ratios.

When eight candidates filed for the 2008 school board election the district used a primary to narrow the field to six. The district did away with the primary this year, so all eight candidates will be on the Nov. 2 ballot.
