Debi Krause unseated longtime incumbent Randall Holland, 392 votes to 336, in the runoff for the Republican nomination for the District 1 seat. Holland was first elected to the school board in 1986.
In the District 4 primary runoff, Michael Shelley, a vocal opponent of the Common Core educational standards, trounced one-term incumbent Will Dunn, 375 votes to 200, for the Republican nomination. Krause will face Democratic candidate Betty Kinney in the Nov. 4 general election, but there is no Democratic candidate for the District 4 seat, so Shelley will take that seat.. (Emphasis added.)Editor's note - That's a pretty solid whacking of an incumbent, 375 to 200.
