The deadline for filing to run for one of the five expiring seats on the Georgetown County School Board is at noon today.
As of late Tuesday, only two of the seats in the non-partisan races were contested.
In District Three, which covers a part of unincorporated Andrews, Santee and Sampit communities, incumbent Sandra Johnson and newcomer Gene Footman have filed.
In District 6, the Pawleys Island area, incumbent Teresa Bennani is not seeking another term. Newcomers Richard Kerr and Peggy Wheeler-Cribb have filed for the seat.
The other three incumbents who have filed are Elery Little (District 5), Zelma Carr (District 4) and Sarah Elliott (District 1).

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
