County School Board Chairman Mike Evatt said Monday he does not plan to seek re-election to his District 9 post.
He said, "This decision was made after much prayer and consideration. Recent career changes as well as family responsibilities have led me to this decision.
"It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your District 9 School Board representative and Chairman for the past 3 ½ years.
"My heart will always be with the school system and the many wonderful people there. I hope to return to public service in the future in some capacity.
"I will always believe that the strength of our community is directly related to the strength of our public schools.
"Thank you to all who have supported me and my family these past four years, especially to my lovely wife who has always been there for me."
Karen Farrow is the latest to pick up for the seat.
