The North Allegheny School Board is elected by all the residents of North Allegheny (Marshall, McCandless, Bradford Woods, and Franklin Park) for 4 year terms. Every 2 years either 4 or 5 seats are up for re-election.
I actually found an outdated website for when these 5 candidates ran in 2007.
Will the all Republican School Board survive the fact that they raised taxes the last 2 years in row? Will the Democrats put out any real candidates to run against them?
