Six file for three school board seats

Since filing reopened last Thursday, more candidates lined up for ABSS school board.  Three seats are on the ballot for November.

The race has six candidates: Chuck Marsh, who filed during the earlier filing period in December; former state representative and county commissioner Dan Ingle; newcomer Charles Parker of Mebane; Seneca Rogers, an unsuccessful candidate from 2020; Leonard Harrison, 3161 Fieldstone Lane, Mebane, who filed Wednesday afternoon; and Avery Wagoner of Burlington, who filed Thursday.

There were no additional candidates on Friday morning (filing ended at noon), and none of the three incumbents – Wayne Beam, Allison Gant, or Tony Rose – filed for reelection.

Rogers was the fifth-place finisher (among 11 candidates) in the school board race in 2020 when four seats were on the ballot.
