There are four seats open on the Frazier School Board with five candidates seeking the positions. All have cross-filed.

Seeking re-election are incumbents Deborah Vargo Alekson of Perryopolis, Thomas Shetterly of Perryopolis and David Simmons of Grindstone. Newcomers seeking a position on the board are Francy Angelo of Perryopolis and Kevin Brown of Perryopolis.

• Simmons, 53, will be seeking his fourth term and hopes to continue with many projects that have been implemented while he was on the board.

“I would like to be able to continue with our building projects and our renovations,” Simmons said. “I would also like to try and keep our test scores at the highest standards possible.”

• Brown, 52, a businessman, is a lifelong resident of the area and an alumnus of the district.

“I feel I can help with my background in business,” Brown said. “I'd like to see a safe level of education at a cost that the taxpayers can afford. I'd like to keep it affordable for the taxpayers. We have an older tax base, so I'd like to remain cautious of costs. I know that with the state cuts that it's difficult, but I want to make sure that it stays affordable for the taxpayers.”

Alekson and Shetterly did not return numerous phone calls and Angelo declined to comment.
