With the close for filing April 2018 election papers for the Franklin Schools – Board of Education, two incumbents are running unopposed, Janet Evans (Current Board President) and Larry Gamble (appointed member running for the first time). The third incumbent Jeff Lewis, elected to the Board in 2015 has chosen not to run but in his place, his father Claude Lewis (is running to replace him.
Since there are three seats and there are three candidates. The outcome is moot. If anyone actually cared to follow the Board of Education elections, the conjecture would be that no one really wants to run anymore.
