Ballots Set for September School Board Election


Residents of the Iowa Quad Cities will have plenty of choices to make when they go to the polls next month for school board elections. There'll be races on the ballot in each of the four school districts in Scott County.

Seven candidates have filed to run for three seats on the Bettendorf school board, including former finance director Maxine McEnany. She resigned earlier this year after raising questions about financial audits of the district.

For the Davenport school board, six people, including incumbent Clyde Mayfield, are running for three seats. Richard Clewell has decided not to run after serving for 16 years, but will run in the fall for the city council.

Members of the Pleasant Valley school board are elected from districts and only one candidate has filed to run in both the lst and 7th districts. But two people have filed to run in the 2nd district - for the seat being given up by board president Heather Witters.

Four candidates, including two incumbents, are running for three seats on the North Scott school board. 

School board elections in Scott County, and the rest of Iowa, will be held on September 12th.
