Optional Member Code

It's still cold out and it's hard to imagine that spring will come soon, but this year, filing date for those interested in running for office is coming up soon. April 22 is the date that all candidates for partisan office need to have their paperwork completed and filed.

If you have been thinking about running for local office, whether that be county commissioner, or even state representative, please take the time to contact the candidate recruitment committee to go through what it takes to run. Send an email to, and we'll be glad to spend some time with you.

  • School Board elections 2014


    Serving as a school board member is one of the most important responsibilities a citizen can undertake. You, if elected to serve, and your fellow board members will establish educational goals that will help shape the future of your community and society.

    Being a board member is a complex and varied job, sometimes frustrating as you struggle long hours with problems that never seem to be resolved. But it also is rewarding as you watch students achieve, succeed and lead happy, productive lives as a result of an environment you'll help to provide.

    School board members are charged, by law, with providing quality education for the youth of your community. You should work for the best interests of all pupils and all citizens, a task requiring constant effort and a strong commitment to serving other people. If you are truly interested in devoting your time and talents to meeting this challenge, your local school administration and your state school boards association applaud your decision to run for election and wish you the best of luck. We stand ready and willing to serve you.
