Board members file for re-election

DUNCAN — Eight people filed for various school board positions Monday as the three-day filing period began.

Each school board in the county has one seat up for election Feb. 12. And many of the incumbents have already filed for re-election. Of the school board seats, only two incumbents have not filed and only one school board is lacking someone to file.

All of the independent school board No. 3 seats and the Red River Technology Center No. 3 seat are for five-year terms. The No. 1 seat for Grandview Board of Education is for a three-year term.

The filing period will continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. For seat with multiple people filing, there will be an election. For those seats where only one person files, there will be no election and those individuals will join the school boards at the beginning of the new term.

People who have filed include:

• Duncan — Eric Davis was elected to the seat on the Duncan Board of Education in 2008. Davis was also among the earliest people to file, having done so by 9:21 a.m. Monday.

• Comanche — Garland Davis was re-elected to the Comanche Board of Education in 2008. Davis was one of four people to file before 9 a.m. Monday.

• Marlow — Brad Bowles is the lone individual who filed Monday who isn’t on a school board. Bowles filed for the No. 3 seat for the Marlow Board of Education. The seat is held by Robert Greer for this term.

• Central High — Larry L. Sallee Jr. filed for Central High Board of Education. Sallee took over the seat after Jamie Crider, who was elected in 2008, stepped down for personal reasons.

• Bray-Doyle — Karl Shackelford, who was elected in 2008, filed for re-election just after 11 a.m. Monday. Shackelford is the president of the Bray-Doyle Board of Education.

• Grandview — Sandy Bowden filed for the Grandview Board of Education. Bowden has been on the school board for about 20 years.
