Write-in candidates sought for ACGC School Board

GROVE CITY -- Write-in candidates will be needed to fill open seats on the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City School Board,

There are four open positions up for election this year, but only one person has filed for office.

None of the four board members whose term is up has filed for re-election.

Megan Morrison, of Atwater, is the sole candidate to file for office.

At its meeting Monday, the ACGC School Board discussed options for filling the remaining seats.

If votes are cast for write-in candidates, the three top vote-getters among the write-ins would be contacted to see if they want to serve, but they are not obligated to take the office, said Superintendent Sherri Broderius.

If the top three vote-getters decline, then the board has the discretion of contacting any other write-in candidates or appointing someone whose name did not appear on the ballot. Board members Janell Johnson, Gwen Chase, John Cunningham and Dale Hoerchler did not file for re-election.
