Srp, Dunn, McDonald elected to Camanche School Board

CAMANCHE — The results are in and the three candidates elected to the Camanche School Board are Dan Srp, Mike Dunn and Larry McDonald.

Incumbent Albert McManus fell just shy of McDonald’s 119 votes with 112 votes, keeping him from serving his first full, four-year term for the Camanche school district.

“I’m fine. If that’s who people want to vote in, I’m fine with that. Ultimately it’s their decision and I respect that,” McManus said. “I know Mike and Dan, they’ll do a good job. Larry, I don’t know him, I hope he does a good job.”

This is McDonald’s first run at the Camanche School Board, but not his first experience with the district itself. Before retiring last year, he spent the last 22 years as a maintenance man and custodian for the district, which he feels played in his favor for being voted to the school board.

”I want to thank all the people who voted for me. I really appreciate that they did that,” McDonald said. “I’m really looking forward to getting it done. I hope I can stand up to what the people expect me to do.”

McDonald will be joined in victory by two men who know what it means to be a part of the Camanche School Board.

Srp has served on the board for one, four-year term and the veteran, Dunn will be adding another term to the 10 years he already has served.

”I’m real appreciative of the people of the district who support me and have the confidence in me to be on the board again for another four years,” Dunn said. “I’m feeling really good.”

Dunn’s fellow incumbent, Srp, knew that it would be a close race, but said he is happy with results and confident for the future of the Camanche School Board.

“I saw that it was close and we had great candidates but I’m excited and happy to give my time for the next four years,” Srp said. “Fortunately I’ve been there so I can just keep going and continue learning and be better prepared to making decisions.”
