GREENFIELD — Voters and election watchers who hoped school board races would spice up the election this fall will be disappointed: Only two of the eight school board seats up for election will be contested.
Southern Hancock and Eastern Hancock each have one contested race and one race in which an incumbent is unopposed. Two incumbents also will run unopposed for the Greenfield-Central School Board. Two newcomers are running for the two at-large seats on the Mt. Vernon board.
Voters in Southern Hancock and Eastern Hancock, at least, should expect to see some grassroots campaigning in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 4 election.
