The impending general election will feature new names on the ballot, many of which have entered the race for the Campbell County School District Board of Trustees.

Wednesday evening, nine of the 14 candidates running for the three open school board seats broached the topics of bullying, the nation and statewide teacher shortage and the continuing difficulty of financing schools in a forum hosted by the League of Women Voters.
