Nine seek local school board posts

Posted: Friday, Sep 28th, 2012

Election 2012

EVANSTON — Local voters will see a host of candidates for school board posts in Evanston, Mountain View and Lyman in the general election in November.

In Evanston, three incumbent board members — Harriet C. Beck, Julie Burleigh and Orrin Martin — are seeking to regain their four-year seats for Uinta County School District No. 1. Challenging them are David Bennett, recently-retired athletics director Kay Fackrell, Bridger Feuz, Chris S. Katzl, Mark Madia and Bryant Voss.

The top four vote-getters among the nine candidates will be seated on the board.

In Mountain View, the competition for the three available four-year seats on the Uinta County School District No. 4 board is much more static, with the three candidates — Deb Hovde, Tony Layson, Jr., and Mark Walker — likely shoo-ins for the posts. Only a write-in candidate will prevent the three from being seated.

In the race for three seats in Lyman on the Uinta County School Board No. 6, voters will choose from among seven candidates for three four-year seats and four candidates for a pair of two-year terms.

Incumbent board members Dan Covolo and Chad Martin have joined challengers Kenneth Allen, Mike Ellison, Bart Lyman, Eric Quinney and Todd Rollins in seeking four-year terms. The top three vote-getters will join the board.

Incumbents Sherri Bluemel and Jim Eyre are running against candidates Nathan Tait Heaton and Dana Vercimak to retain their seats on the Lyman board for two-year terms. The two receiving the most votes will win the positions.

Rural Fire District Board

Newcomer William W. Johnson is seeking a term on the Uinta County Rural Fire District Board, and is challenging incumbent members Garie Henry and Dan Lunsford. The top two vote-getters will join or remain on the board.

Conservation District

Uinta County Conservation District supervisory board members Dennis Cornelison and Spencer Eyre are facing no on-ballot opposition in their bids to retain their seats on the UCCD board.

Judges faces retention votes

Third Judicial District judges Daniel Forgey and Michael L. Greer will face their required retention votes in the November general election. Though the judges are appointed by the Wyoming governor, their periodic retention is determined by voters.

In the retention votes, the judges will retain their posts if a majority of the total votes cast are in their favor.
