Fayette candidates face Aug. 23 deadline 8.15

One Gorham Fayette Board of Education member will seek another term of office in the November general election.

Another has chosen to retire from the board and a third member is undecided.

The deadline for candidates to file petitions with the county election board is Aug. 23.

David Brinegar has decided to seek a second term on the school board, while president Kelly Bentley has decided that her two terms are enough.

Terry Kovar is the third board member whose seat is expiring. He is circulating a petition for candidacy, but he said Monday he hasn’t yet decided if he will file it.

Board members are elected for four year terms, starting in January.
