Some new faces on school boards in Dora, Lutie and Thornfield where no election was required

Two three-year positions were up for election Tuesday on all five Ozark County School districts, but school board elections were held only in Bakersfield and Gainesville, where the number of candidates exceeded the number of terms expiring. Missouri law allows government entities to skip elections when the number of candidates equals the number of terms expiring, as was the case in Dora, Lutie and Thornfield.

Dora. Two seats, those currently held by Robert Lee and Terry Martin were expiring. Both incumbents filed for re-election. Because the number of candidates equals the number of vacancies, no election is required.

Lutie: Two three-year terms were expiring, the seats currently held by Carl Kruger and Jan Conklin. Kruger filed for re-election; Conklin did not. Ric Engelhardt also filed. Because the number of candidates equaled the number of vacancies, no election was required.

Thornfield: Two three-year terms were expiring, the seats currently held by Darrin Clayton and Jerry Donley. Clayton filed for re-election; Donley did not. Greg Prock also filed. Because the number of candidates equals the number of vacancies, no election is required.
