Filing opened on Monday for two boards in Macon County. The Macon County Board of Education and the Soil and Water Conservation Board both have two seats up for grabs.
Seats held by school board members Tommy Cabe (District 2) and Gary Shields (District 4) will both be on the November ballot. When filing opened Monday at noon, Cabe was first in line to file to reclaim his seat on the board. Shields will not be seeking reelection to the school board as he is running for Macon County commissioner this November.
Former Franklin High School teacher and coach Fred Goldsmith filed on Monday in hopes of winning the open District 4 seat. Carroll Poindexter filed on Wednesday to run in District 4.
The Soil and Water Conservation Board seats are currently held by James Roper and Pamela Bell. As of Wednesday at noon, no one has filed for the open seats.
The filing period runs through July 7 at noon and both boards require a $5 filing fee.
