The Liberty-Benton School Board race is shaping up to be an interesting one. The Courier reports fired teacher Mark Badertscher will run for a seat on the board. He was among seven people in the district to file to run for two open seats. Wednesday was the filing deadline for school board candidates.
Badertscher served as an agriculture teacher for LB before he was fired in 2013. A student choked another student while Badertscher was out of the classroom. He appealed his firing and won the case. Badertscher tells the newspaper he hasn’t settled financially with the district, but that he likely would before the November election.
The other candidates include Shawn Lyon, Stephen Benson, Kevin Schoonover, Gene Stump, Justin Terry, and Brody Yingling.
