Longtime Haywood County Board of Education Chairman Chuck Francis will compete against Daran McAdams of Rhoda Street, in Canton.
Two seats are up in the Beaverdam district, currently occupied by Ronnie Clark and David Burnette. They’re both running for re-election, but are joined in that endeavor by Magnolia Brown Thomas of Reynolds School Road in Canton, Danny Miller of Peaceful Path in Canton, Latausha Forney of Kim’s Cove Road in Canton and Randy McDowell of Dutch Cove Road, also in Canton.
Two Waynesville seats are also up for re-election, although only one incumbent has filed, Jim Harley Francis. Current board member Ann Barrett opted against running again. Three others, all of Waynesville, look to take one or both of those seats — Andy Hall of Sloan Drive, Danya Vanhook of Turn About Court and Logan Nesbitt of April Park.
