Marc Miller said, " When I first ran for the Board of Education, I did it because I wanted a way to donate my time and effort to the community that I love, and I felt this was the best way to positively affect the children of Springfield.  After three years of contributions, I am happy to continue to volunteer."

One position remains vacant.  It can be filled by a write-in candidate in the November election.
