Incumbent Goble retains NS board seat, 56 to 44 percent
The election results for the race going on in North Sanpete School District No. 1 was a tight race, with incumbent Stacey Goble of Mt. Pleasant being re-elected with 55.88 percent of the popular vote.
Goble earned herself another term on the board by collecting 537 votes, as opposed to her opponent, Cindy Larsen of Mt. Pleasant, who didn’t quite match, pulling in only 424 (44.12 percent ).
The No. 1 seat that the race was deciding presides over Spring City and the eastern part of Mt. Pleasant City.
“I believe we have to be proactive in every child’s education,” Goble said, “so each one can become college and career ready.
“We have to give them a safe environment, quality staff and the tools necessary to achieve success. As the mother of two school-age children, I see firsthand the challenges and triumphs at our schools. I can then address these items accordingly.”
The North Sanpete School District also had seats in District No. 2 and 3 up for re-election, but unopposed candidates filled both.
Shalmarie Morley of Moroni ran unopposed in District No. 2, which covers the western part of Mt. Pleasant and Moroni.
Rich Brotherson of Mt. Pleasant has been a school board member for eight years and has been serving as president. He ran unopposed in District No. 3, which covers southeastern Mt. Pleasant and the Pine Creek area.
