  • With only a couple of weeks left to file for the April 2 election, filing in area school board races is slow.
    Incumbent Phyllis Balagna and Bob White have filed for the Lee’s Summit Board of Education. None of the other local races have had new people file, though offices have been closed for winter break.
    People can file during normal office hours at the central office in their respective school district. Filing closes at 5 p.m. Jan. 15.
    To file for election, candidates must be resident taxpayers of the school district and have resided in Missouri for at least one year preceding the election. In addition, they must be at least 24 years old.
    The following are those who have filed in each of the area school districts. The Independence School District has elections in even years, so there is no election in 2013.
    Blue Springs - Incumbents Dave Wright and Rhonda Gilstrap have filed. Two seats are open, and terms are for three years.
    Fort Osage - Incumbents Sharon Dankenbring and Carol Marcks have filed. Two seats are open, and terms are for three years.
    Grain Valley - Incumbents Michael Hackett and Julie Groff have filed. Two seats are open, and terms are for three years.
    Lee’s Summit - Incumbent Phyllis Balagna and newcomer Bob White. The second incumbent, Gene Brixey, has not filed. Two seats are open, and terms are for three years.
