The new member of the Marlow Board of Education will be revealed Tuesday, following a vote of Marlow residents.
Brad Boles and Julie Sanders are vying for the seat 3 position on the school board. The person elected will replace Robert Greer, who has served 15 years on the school board.
In-person absentee voting began Friday and will continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday on the ground floor of the Stephens County Courthouse. By 11 a.m. Friday, only eight people had voted in-person absentee.
Stephens County Election Board Secretary Peggy Winton wasn’t surprised by the low turnout for the school board election, prior to Tuesday.
“Most of the people who will vote will probably vote at their precincts,” Winton said.
The precincts eligible to vote in Tuesday’s election will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Winton wasn’t sure what to expect for that day’s turnout.
This is the only election set for Tuesday. During the filing period, the Marlow school board election was the only race to receive more than one candidate.
Boles is the president of Wilco Machine and Fab. Sanders works part-time for the Oklahoma Parents Center and is the chairwoman of the Smart Start Board for Stephens County.
Both are graduates of Marlow High School. Both have also obtained their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
Winton said, once the precincts close at 7 p.m. Tuesday, it won’t take long to get the results into the Election Board office. From there, the candidate with the highest number of votes will be the new school board member.

Commissioners discuss temporary fix to courthouse air conditioning issues
The Board of Stephens County Commissioners held an emergency meeting Thursday to find a temporary solution for cooling off the courthouse, until a new system can be installed. Commissioners approved a temporary solution from Allied Services in Ardmore and will rent an air conditioning unit for $10,000 for the first month and $7,000 for the second month. The commissioners estimate it will take about two months for any company to get a new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system in stock.

Is it ‘coincidence’ the OCE has no teeth?
Since I spend most of my working hours in offices in Duncan and Waurika, it’s nice both communities now have recycling programs so I can deposit the sticky notes that serve as my memory.
