Sandiford, Brown new to Unit 2 board
What originally seemed to be shaping up to be a hotly-contested Robinson Unit 2 school board race resulted in the election of one incumbent and two newcomers without opposition.

Incumbent Dennis Inboden retained his seat on the board for another four-year term. He garnered 1,339 votes, or 29.85 percent.

Newcomers Bill Sandiford and Chad Brown also were elected for four years. Sandiford received 1,212 votes, or 27.02 percent, while Brown got 1,191 votes, or 26.55 percent.

Originally, five candidates were vying for the board in the consolidated election.

Robert Quick pulled out of the race in February, early enough his name did not appear on the ballot. Sherry Bopp withdrew March 16, after ballots were printed and early voting began. Although she was no long running, she still received 744 votes.

The election was complicated by state residency restrictions. Inboden, Bopp and Sandiford live in the same township and range area, 7N and 12W. Under state law, no more than three people from the same area can be on the board at one time.

Board member Von Meeks, whose term does not expire until 2019, is also from that part of the district. That means, had Bopp remained in the race, only two of the three candidates could be elected.

Of the two incumbents not seeking re-election, Nancy Berty is from 7N and 12W, while Stacey Shew lives in 6N and 12W. Brown also lives in 6N and 12W. That means, essentially, that he was unopposed for the third seat.
