Jarvis outlines the process of how school board executed the “Lot” election.
Jarvis shares his thoughts why the two candidates went with a “Lot” election versus holding a special election.
In addition to Linear, Bill Noyes and Carrie Bergfield were also re-elected to their seats. The board also elected their board president and vice presidents. Donny Wyatt and Noyes will remain in those roles.
