In the Nov. 3 nonpartisan general election, the top five vote-getters among 17 candidates for the school board in the official canvass are all Democrats. They are Roger Harris, Richard Hooker, Jr., and Shearra Miller, all incumbents, newcomer Jeff Jones, and Jo Boggs, who served earlier terms on the school board and county commision. (A recount Nov. 13 confirmed the winners.)
