BOURBON — The election Nov. 6 for school board in the Triton School Corporation will feature one contested race and one re-election of an unopposed incumbent.
Incumbent Kenneth Miller will seek a second term and runs without opposition in the District 4 race.
Miller, and his wife Nancy, have been Bourbon residents for 27 years, and have seven children, all graduates of Triton High School.
Miller is employed at Newmar Corporation and has served for almost 10 years as a Bourbon Public Library trustee.
Miller said he “looks forward to working with other members of the Triton team to prepare students for continued success in all facets of their education.”
In the District 2 election, incumbent Steven D. Stichter will seek to defend his position of six years on the board against challenger Andrew L. Cook.
Stichter is a 1977 graduate of Bremen High School and a graduate of Manchester College. Stichter is married with three children, all Triton grads. He is a controller at Sands Office Equipment.
“The Triton School Corporation has had a positive influence on my family,” said Stichter. “My employment experience with public school finance gives me knowledge that can be helpful to the school board. Being a member of the school board is also a way of giving back to a community that has given us much over the years.”
Cook, a 1979 Triton grad, has been married to Patti Cook for 35 years. “We have seven kids and have fostered many others,” said Cook. “I plan to focus on academics and financial responsibility if elected.”
Cook served for two decades on the Etna Green Town Council and is a founding member of the Etna Township First Responders, as well as being a former member Etna Green Lions Club.
