Three file for District 7 school board seat

WINNSBORO – Three candidates have filed for the special school board election to fill the District 7 seat previously held by Beth Reid, who died last month following a long battle with cancer.

The candidates are Lisa Brandenburg, Darreyl Davis and Herb Rentz.

Brandenburg, who is employed as Coordinator of Intervention in special services for the Fairfield County School District, has been employed by the district for more than 30 years, serving as a teacher, assistant principal and principal.

“I feel I’m the candidate most qualified to fill the vacancy,” Brandenburg said.

Darreyl Davis, who works in environmental health and safety at Isola, is president of Believers and Achievers, is a past chair of the Fairfield Elementary School Improvement Council and is the current president of the Fairfield Elementary PTO. The father of six children, two of whom are enrolled in Fairfield County School District schools, Davis said he has a passion to help kids as well as the community.

Herb Rentz, manager of Mid-County Water Company, said he is hoping to continue the work of Reid, his late wife.

“I feel a calling to take on her work,” Rentz said.

The election will be held Jan. 23, 2018.

The Voice will have more information about the candidates in a later issue.
