Jeremy Orman tiptoed to a 5-vote victory in a runoff bid for a seat on the Sheridan School Board, and while his opponent, Jan Caldwell, said she was not going to ask for a recount, she did express concern about the low number of polling places open to patrons on election day.

Voters took to the polls in May to settle a three-person race that itself was razor close. In that election, Orman received 488 votes, Caldwell got 481, and Margaret Dobson received 421. In Tuesday’s runoff, Orman received 728 votes to Caldwell’s 723.

Officers change at Poyen School Board

The Poyen School Board met on Thursday, June 20 at the Jerry and Ouida Newton Arena one of the items on the agenda was naming the officers of the board for the upcoming year.
