Residents who wish to run for local school board seats or seats on the Taylor County Soil and Water Conservation Board have less than two weeks to do so. 

The deadline to file for election to those seats is Tuesday, Aug. 14, at 4 p.m. 

Three seats will be up for election on the Campbellsville Independent Board of Education. Those seats are currently occupied by Angie Johnson, Mitch Overstreet, and Suzanne Wilson. 

Three seats are also up for election on the Taylor County Board of Education and include Deanna Hunt’s seat in District 1, David Hall’s seat in District 2, and Jan Burkhead’s seat in District 4. 

The District 4 seat will be to fill the unexpired term, which still has two years remaining on it, from the 2016 election in which Tony Davis won. The elections for District 1 and District 2 will be for normal four-year terms, according to Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney. 

For the Soil and Water Conservation Board, there are three seats up for election to the seven-member board this year. Members are elected to four-year terms and elections are held every two years in even-numbered years. The elections are staggered, meaning three seats are up for election during one election cycle with four seats being up for election the following election cycle. 

As of press time, Overstreet has filed for re-election to the Campbellsville Independent Board of Education, and Hall and Hunt have filed for re-election to their respective seats. On the Soil and Water Conservation Board, Sophia Campbell has filed for re-election to her seat. 

As of press time, those are all of the filings for those positions, according to Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney.
