Three School Board seats are up for grabs in this year’s Great Falls school election, set for May 2, 2017. The election will be held by mail. Thus far, according to the Commissioner of Political Practices’ website, incumbents Jan Cahill (Board Chairman) and Don Ryan have filed for re-election. Trustee Jason Brantley is also up for another three-year term.
Cahill’s a good hand, and should be a shoe-in not only to win, but to receive the most overall votes. Ryan and Brantley should be formidable as well, as incumbents traditionally dominate Great Falls school elections.
If you’re considering serving on the School Board, there’s still plenty of time to decide.
The filing deadline closes March 23.
