Five file for school board in District 622

A total of five candidates will vie for a seat on the District 622 School Board 

Two incumbents and three challengers filed for three seats – incumbents Amy Coborn and Michelle Yener and challengers Caleb Anderson, Danny Porter and Bennie Bennett.

School Board Member Mark Wheeler did not file for a fourth term.

“My kids are out of school now and I think it’s important for board members to have kids in the district,” he said. “This has been the most rewarding years of my adult life.”

The District 622 School Board Election will be Nov. 4.

See the Aug. 20 Woodbury Bulletin for more on the candidates.
