Haddock, Henningson, Horner reelected to board of education

There were no changes made to the Cassville School Board after Tuesday's election, as incumbents David Haddock, Becky Henningson and Jon Horner were reelected to the board of education.

Unofficial results from Tuesday's election showed Haddock garnering 24 percent (680 votes), Henningson coming in second with 24 percent (671 votes), and Horner taking the final seat with 23 percent (657 votes).

Wade Hermansen came in fourth with 16 percent (463 votes), and Ann Hennigan came in fifth with 12 percent (335 votes). There were also 11 write-in candidates.

Haddock said he's happy with the results and pleased to see the district's bond issue approved.

"Everything turned out real well," he said. "I want to thank everyone for voting and I appreciate their support of me and on the bond issue."

Henningson said she appreciates the voters' confidence allowing her to serve another three years.

"I'm pleased with the outcome of the board election, and I appreciate the support and confidence of the patrons of the district for allowing me to serve the next three years," she said. "I am also extremely happy with the result of the bond issue. That's very important to us and I'm happy the patrons supported it."

Horner said he is thankful to the voters for their support of all three incumbents.

"I appreciate the support shown for myself, for Becky and for David and the opportunity to come back on the board," he said. "I sincerely appreciate the patrons' support of the bond issue, because that will allow us to continue to do the things we want to do for the students and staff of the school district, and it allows us to continue to do the things that make us a great district for the patrons in Cassville R-4."

Hermansen said he is not likely to run for the position again, but hopes to see some different people elected to the board in the future.

"I would like to see a different set of eyes on the board," he said. "I feel I'm not going to run any more, but I feel like a different set of eyes would be good."

Hennigan said despite not being elected, she is happy with the results of the election.

"I guess I'm happy with the results, and I might run again; we'll see," she said. "I would have been happier if it were me, but the board we have does a great job, so I'm happy."
