Terms for the five members of the board of trustees are staggered so there’s never a complete new board. Stipends for service are about $2,400 per year.

The filing deadline this year is Sept. 8. Qualifying papers and instructions are available from the Warren County Circuit Clerk’s Office, where completed papers may also be returned.

Murphy’s seat will be the only contest on the Nov. 7 ballot.

Other members of the board are Jerry Boland, District 1; Betty Tolliver, District 3; Jan Daigre, president, District 4; and Tommy Shelton, District 5.
