With the filing deadline less than a one week away, it appears two local school boards could each potentially be getting a new member.
Two Whitley County Board of Education seats are on the ballot in November.
First-District board member Larry Lambdin, who serves as chairman of the board, has yet to file to run for re-election.
One other candidate, Kenny Carr, who is a local banker and minister, has filed to run for that seat.
Second-District board member Brenda S. Rose, who was appointed last year to fill out the remainder of Delmar Mahan’s term in office, is running for re-election and is so far unopposed.
On the Corbin Board of Education, two seats are up for election, but so far only one person has filed to run. Incumbent Kimberly Sasser Croley has already filed for re-election. So far incumbent Carcille Burchette hasn’t filed.
All three incumbent Williamsburg Independent Board of Education members, who are up for re-election this year, have filed to run, including: Kim Williams, Roger Faulkner and John Jeffries.
Kim Broome White, who was recently appointed to replace Jason Caddell on the board, has filed seeking to fill out the remainder of Caddell’s term in office.
So far all four are unopposed.
The filing deadline for the school board races is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
