Four Camanche challengers

CAMANCHE — With their terms on the cusp of expiration, three Camanche School Board members will run for re-election, with only one new nominee challenging their seats at the board.

Larry McDonald, a Camanche resident and retiree of the Camanche School District, will run his first campaign to become the newest member of the Camanche School Board.

"I was an employee for the Camanche School District for 20 years as a custodian and maintenance man and retired 13 years ago. I know one side of the school district, so I'd like to know what the other side is like," McDonald said.

McDonald will run against three incumbents for the 2013 election — Michael Dunn, Daniel Srp and Albert McManus.

The current terms will expire during the school board's meeting on Sept. 16.

Iowa school board laws require elections to be held in odd-numbered years and those elected will hold the term for four years.

Dunn became a board member in September 2003. In September 2008, Dunn was nominated and voted in as president, and has held the position since.

Dunn's vice president, Srp, gained a seat on the board in September 2009 and became vice president September 2011.

The president and vice president elections are held each term in September at a special school board organizational meeting.

McManus, a life-long Camanche resident, will run for his second term and is thrilled with the opportunity.

"I love everything about Camanche. Anytime I can help out, I like to get involved. I really enjoy it," McManus said.

There is still time to run for school board. The nomination papers aren't due until the beginning of August.
