Another candidate makes it a race for school board

Another candidate has filed for the Perryton School Board in the May 2 general election, making it a three way race for two positions on the board.

Ramon Vela is the latest to file for school board. He resigned his position on the Ochiltree Hospital District Board earlier this week to be able to run.

There are two positions up for election on the school board. Incumbent Mike Heck has filed for another term, and Lane Haley has announced for the board as well. The other incumbent up for election is Loyd Cator.

School board members serve three year terms.

In the hospital board election, Vela’s term is up in May, and the OGH board appointed Dr. Tyler Kirklin to serve until that time. Kirklin has filed for a position on the board, as has the other incumbent, Kirk Courson.
