When several local boards re-organize later this month, residents will see new officials representing them following Tuesday’s election.
In Grandview, Ward II Alderwoman Debra McKinstry did not file for re-election. Voters selected Annette Turnbaugh (272 votes) over Sage Beauchamp (187 votes) to fill the city seat. Two unchallenged incumbents have also officially been re-elected: Leonard Jones in Ward I and Jim Crain in Ward III. The board members will be sworn in on Tuesday, April 13 at 7pm.
For the Hickman Mills C-1 School Board, the three-year seats currently held by Ken Bonar and Teresa Edens were both up for grabs, as neither filed for re-election. On Tuesday, voters selected between four candidates--April Cushing, J.T. Brown, Christopher Murray, and Don Hoskins. The close race resulted in the election of Cushing (687 votes) and Brown (561 votes). The C-1 school board will re-organize on April 8th at 7:30pm.
Three seats on the Grandview C-4 School Board were also open this year--two three-year positions, and a one-year position to fill the seat left open by Angela Langford’s resignation. C-4 School Board President Dennis Hooton did not file for re-election. Voters selected Cindy Bastian and re-elected Ann Fisher to fill the three-year seats. Amber Woodrome was unchallenged for the one-year, unfulfilled seat on the school board. The C-4 board re-organizes on Thursday, April 15 at 6:30pm.
