The Monroe County School Corporation’s board will have an almost entirely new set of officers next year, according to documents provided Friday by the Monroe County Clerk’s office.
That’s because President Jim Muehling, Secretary Martha Street and Assistant Secretary Kelly Smith all decided against running for another term in office.
Vice President Keith Klein is on the ballot, facing off against Bloomington musician David Wierhake.
Likewise, current members Lois Sabo-Skelton and Sue Wanzer will seek another term. Sabo-Skelton is unopposed, while Wanzer has a pair of challengers: Randy Barrett and John David Crane.
Muehling’s District 4 seat will be assumed by either former city council member and mayoral candidate David Sabbagh or educator and author Donovan Walling.
Three of the five Richland-Bean Blossom board members will appear on November’s ballot: Jimmie Durnil, Debra Walcott and Larry Thrasher. Like Thrasher, Brian Werner will run for the single at-large seat on the board. Mathew Shockney will run for one of the two seats representing Richland Township.
