Two School Board district candidates run unopposed

There is little interest in seeking the seats on the King George School Board for the Nov. 3 election next month.
But at least there is one person in each of the two districts who want the positions enough to run for election.

Below is information on the two candidates for the King George School Board who are each running unopposed for the two seats in two different election districts.

MIKE ROSE
Mike Rose filed late last month with the King George registrar as a write-in candidate for School Board seat in the Shiloh election district.
Rose is the only candidate for that School Board seat. Those wishing to vote for him, must write his name on the ballot.
“I am running for this office because I want to ensure that the students of King George County are being educated in the best possible environment,” Rose said. “I feel that my leadership skills can be used on the School Board to enhance our relationships with our teachers, students and with our Board of Supervisors.”
Rose works at the Dahlgren Naval Base as a system engineer for the Aegis ballistic missile defense program office.
He earned a Bachelor’s in computer science from West Virginia Institute of Technology in 1991 and a Master’s degree in computer science from Virginia Tech in 1998.
He is a member of Shiloh Baptist Church. He coached Little League Baseball and King George Parks & Recreation football teams in the past and he is currently coaching two King George Youth Athletic Association football teams.
Rose, 40, and his spouse, Shelly, have lived in the county for nearly 18 years. They have three sons. Eric is a freshman at King George High School. Zach is a fifth grader and Matt is a second grader, both at King George Elementary School.

RICK A. RANDALL
Rick A. Randall is on the ballot in the James Monroe District and is running unopposed for the seat currently held by Payne Kilbourn, who is not seeking re-election.
“The School Board, lacking any direct taxation or legislative authority, is a plant manager who must efficiently keep the engine of the school system running as smoothly as possible with the limited resources it can obtain,” Randall told The Journal in May. “Any committee type organization has the tendency to sometimes spend too much of their limited time and resources focusing on less important issues — thus losing that opportunity to deal with the more critical ones.”
He added: “Unnecessary friction between the School Board and the County Board of Supervisors affects not only the time to deal with these issues, but can impact the resources available. Getting discussions back on track, dealing with externally limited resources, and working together with disparate people and interests regardless of personalities are what I do.”

Randall grew up in the Peninsula and attended Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton.
He has lived in the county since 2003. He works for a contractor in Dahlgren.
Randall, 39, and his spouse, Nancy, have a young daughter, Susan, who will be starting kindergarten in fall of 2010.

 POLLING PLACES
The Shiloh election district’s polling place is in King George Elementary School on Ridge Road (Route 205) at the intersection of Kings Highway (Route 3) at Purkins Corner.
The James Monroe election district has a new polling place. It is no longer at the former middle school building.
The polling place is now located in the former high school, which is now called the new King George Middle School. It is located on Dahlgren Road (Route 206) near the intersection with Kings Highway (Route 3).
