School board races hard to call
Just now, here's what we know:
For Bath County School Board ...
Rhonda Grimm won in Willliamsville with 90 votes; (Ruth Tolson had 79 and Clara Tennant, 27.)
Ellen Miller won in Warm Springs with 148. The other announced candidate, Steven Hodge, had 7.
In Millboro, it's Allison Hicklin. She got 89 votes, Dreama Burns 10 and Bill Manion 9.
As of late yesterday, Ms. Hicklin had not returned a call to the school board office about whether she'd accept the job. We called her twice and she has not called back. So, she's the winner for now, but it's unconfirmed whether or not she will serve.
For Highland County School Board ..
We have it, albeit unconfirmed, that Elizabeth "Bobbie" Hefner, the confirmed winner, will accept to serve alongside winner John Moyers Jr. and Joe Neil.
More news later as we can confirm our sources!
