Looks like we have a couple of interesting elections coming up in August.

The School Board for district 5/6 has five candidates filed for 3 seats and there may be more when the Roane County election Commission brings us up to date.

Here is what is posted so far. I have boiled it down to people who have turned in a valid petition for election.
