Candidates File for FTIS School Board Elections

Fort Thomas Board of Education/Google
Editor's note: A previous version of this story did not explicitly state that board members Karen Allen and Jeff Beach are not currently up for re-election. Their terms will come up for re-election in 2016. This story has been edited to clarify this issue.

Members of the Fort Thomas Independent Schools (FTIS) School Board are facing re-election this fall. Tuesday was the deadline to file for election or re-election. These are the candidates who will appear on the ballot in November:

  • Brad Fennell: incumbent, has served four terms in 16 years, seeking a fifth term
  • Scott Johnson: incumbent, has served two terms in eight years, seeking a third term
  • Lisa Duckworth: incumbent, has served 3/4 term in three years, seeking first full term*
  • John Weyer: challenger
  • Mary Adams: challenger
These five candidates are running to fill three spots on the School Board.

Incumbents Karen Allen and Jeff Beach have not filed for re-election, because their terms do not expire until 2016.

* Lisa Duckworth was appointed by state to fill the seat left vacant due to death of board member Gail Federle after one year in office.
