Bowe announces plan to run for re-election

Dec. 3, 2008

At-large seat one on the Germantown School Board will be available in April, and member Tom Bowe has decided to run for re-election to at-large seat seven.

Seat one incumbent Dave Magill has decided not to run for a third term, but Bowe said last week that he intends to run for his second term.

"I think we've done a lot of good things in the last couple of years," Bowe said. "One thing I think I'm pretty good at is cost-cutting, and I think we have to do a lot of that and figure out a way to do everything we want to do for education and also control costs in a down economy."

School board members are elected to three-year terms and are paid $3,500 annually.

Candidacy papers must be filed by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6.

A primary election, if necessary, would be held Tuesday, Feb. 17. The spring election is Tuesday, April 7.
