After next week's municipal elections, the Galesburg Board of Education will include two new representatives from Galesburg Township. Incumbents Molly Palmer and Tom Colclasure chose to seek another term.
The three candidates vying for the two spots are Phillips Slaton, Tianna Cervantez, and H. Wayne Statham. All three believe they can build a better relationship between the school board and teachers.
Slaton, who is a teacher in the Orion School District, said the current board lacks respect for teachers.
