A Piedmont School Board seat will be up for grabs in a Feb. 10 election, and the filing period for candidates is rapidly approaching.
Anyone wishing to file for the seat – for Office No. 5 – must do so between Dec. 1 and Dec. 3. Filing ends at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, Canadian County Election Board Secretary Wanda Armold said. All candidate filings must be completed at the election board office, located at 200 S. Bickford in El Reno, Armold said.
“The Board of Education positions at stake will be filled at the annual school election scheduled for Feb. 10, 2015,” Armold said. “If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the total votes cast in this election, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will meet in a runoff election on Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
“If only one candidate files an election will not be necessary,” she said.
Jerrod Moser currently holds Piedmont’s Office No. 5 seat. It was unclear whether he intended to file for the seat again this term as of press time.
Piedmont Board of Education meetings are held the second Monday of every month beginning at 6 p.m. in the Piedmont Administration Annex, located at 723 Piedmont Road.
