Incumbent Leah Kopp Files Paperwork for Reelection
February 13, 2008 - With a filing deadline now less than two weeks away, only two of four Charles A. Beard School Board incumbents whose seats are up for election this May have made their bids to seek reelection official.
Debi Ware, who holds one of the seven-member board's two Greensboro Township seats, filed her petition of nomination with the Clerk of the Henry Circuit Court on Jan. 25. Leah Kopp, one of CAB's three Wayne Township board members, filed her petition on Feb. 5.
Two other CAB incumbents, Board President Mike Fruth and board member Larry Selvidge, had not filed their petitions of nomination as of Tuesday afternoon. Fruth hold's one of the board's two Ripley Township (Rush County) seats, while Selvidge has a Wayne Township seat.
One challenger has already filed to run in the May 6 election, and another has announced his intention to do so. Mark Fort, who filed his petition Jan. 30, hopes to take one of the two Wayne Township seats up for election; Steve Dalton, who announced his plans to run against Ware for the Greensboro Township seat in a letter to the editor in this week's Banner, said he plans to file his petition of nomination today.
Persons interested in running for any of the four CAB School Board seats have until noon on February 22 to file a petition of nomination with the Clerk of the Henry Circuit Court. State law requires the petitions to be signed by the number of voters equal to two percent of the total vote cast at the last election for secretary of state in the election district that the candidate seeks to represent.
According to Nancy Marcum, Henry County's deputy clerk in charge of voter registration, candidates for the CAB School Board need to have at least 10 signatures on their petitions of nomination. For more information about becoming a school board candidate, contact Marcum at (765) 529-9310.
