School district news



Seven candidates tangle for three seats on Boise school board Aug 29, 2014

By Abbey Smith

Two incumbents will face a financial analyst, a political consultant and a former candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives in the Boise School District Board of Trustees election on September 2, 2014. Another seat, up for election to a two-year term, is guaranteed to bring fresh blood to the board as two newcomers run to fill a vacancy.

At-large incumbents Nancy Gregory and Doug Park face challengers John Hruby, Anthony Shallat and Grant Walden for two six-year terms on the board. First elected in 2002, Gregory has held a position on the board for over a decade, but Park is relatively new, having been appointed in 2013. Challenger Hruby is not unfamiliar to the election process. A former candidate for the District 18B seat in the Idaho House of Representatives, Hruby lost to Brad Bolicek in the Republican primary on May 15, 2012. Though challenger Shallat hasn't run for office before, he has worked under a number of political officials and has also served on the board of directors for the Idaho Civic Engagement Project.

It's a race between an executive director and a senior vice president to fill the board's vacant seat. Candidate Brian Cronin is a Harvard University graduate who has served in a number of different positions. Senior vice president for Strategies 360, he has also worked as a teacher, press secretary, communications specialist, magazine editor and writer. Competitor Travis Jones is an executive director for the Idaho Grain Producers Association.

The winners of the election will attend a new board member orientation meeting on September 3, 2014, and get sworn into office on September 8, 2014.[1]
