Bit of a twist: Danuser says he’s willing to delay the vote till Monday since one applicant, Tyler Beauchamp, was unable to attend tonight. Thinks it would be better to vote now when they have six, but refers to the board, all of whom opt to push it forward.

And that’s the last applicant. Now Danuser is reviewing the attorney’s advice re:vacancies. A note: since they need four yes votes, to approve anybody they’ll need unanimity.

She says she’s running because she’s been part of the school community for 28 years, and wants to be part of making it better. Adds that a big part of the district’s problem has been gossip, supercharged by social media.

She’d want to see the budget before saying where cuts could be made. Says that she experienced a similar period of controversy on the Eolia Board of Trustees, which she believes can be resolved through conversations with the community.

First applicant is Sara McBeth. Questions cluster around two themes: the strife surrounding the board, and how she would approach the budget.

Can’t speak with too much authority, but I believe they need four present to conduct most business.

Lincoln County clerk’s office confirms they won’t have the write-in votes till they certify the results Monday. As things stand now (no results have been certified) Talbert needs 56 of the 96 write in votes to take the second seat.
