Roby, Gill win school board races

School elections were held Tuesday in Arkansas, and in Lawrence County. Two school board positions in the Lawrence County School District (Walnut Ridge and Black Rock) had contested races. Despite each race having three candidates, no runoff is expected.

To win without a runoff, a candidate must have received over 50 percent of the total votes cast.

Both board seats are for a five-year term. The unofficial vote count is as follows:

Black Rock

Matt Morse - 29 (5.69%)

Pat A. Roby - 277 (54.3%)

Lloyd Clark - 204 (40%)

Walnut Ridge

Greg Gill - 258 (50.99%)

Cary G. Massey - 53 (10.47%)

Carl A. "Cap" Phillips - 195 (38.54%)

Incumbents in the race were Roby of Black Rock, who holds the seat for Black Rock, and Phillips, who has held the Walnut Ridge position.

Unopposed candidates

Incumbent Michael Hart of Sedgwick was unopposed for re-election to a position on the Hoxie School Board.

Shane Dail of Ravenden was unopposed for a seat on the Sloan-Hendrix School Board. Bill Davis of Imboden, who currently holds the position, did not seek re-election.

Strawberry resident Craig Whitmire ran unopposed for Zone 4 on the Hillcrest School Board. The position has been held by Scotty Johnson of Saffell, who did not seek re-election.

County Clerk Tina Stowers said Tuesday night that the election went smoothly and that election commissioners would probably be certifying the vote on Monday. Final results were completed by 10 p.m.
