Duneland School Board races get crowded

Back to Front Page


Three-way races are on for two seats on the Duneland School Board in the November elections.

In the race for the Westchester-Pine seat, incumbent John Marshall will face retired Chesterton High School teacher and former state representative Ralph Ayres along with former school board candidate William Barkow.

In the race for an at-large seat, incumbent Michael Trout will face Kathleen Downey and Maureen Hurst.

The third seat up for election this year is the Liberty Township seat held by Ronald Stone, who has no opponent.

The school board candidate filing period ended on Friday, and for weeks, the three incumbents -- Marshall, Trout, and Stone -- were the only ones who filed. But late last week, the other candidates filed.

The school board races will be held on the general election day, Nov. 2, the same day that federal, state, county, and township offices will be on the ballot, along with a voter referendum that will ask voters if Indiana’s constitution should be amended to include the state’s property tax caps.
