PALMYRA — The three 2013 Fluvanna School Board races will have at least two incumbents running.
After the School Board meeting on April 10, chairwoman Camilla Washington (Columbia District) and Carol Tracy Carr (Rivanna District) told Fluco Blog each will run in the 2013 election.
Washington will complete her first term this December, having been elected in 2009. Washington ran unopposed in that election, capturing 852 votes. She has served as the chairwoman the past two years.
Carr was first appointed in 2012 to fill the vacant seat left by Brian Phillips. Carr was elected in a 2012 special election in which she ran unopposed. She captured 2,371 in an election that included a presidential race.
Phillips’ 2009 race was against incumbent Vivian Leach. Phillips carried 61 percent of the vote with 1,927 voting for him.
The third School Board race is in the Cunningham District, currently served by Charles Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse was elected in a special election in 2012, defeating incumbent Bill Hughes. Rittenhouse has not yet made a decision about the race.
Washington and Carr have not filed yet but plan to do so before the early June deadline.
