Incumbents seek re-election to Forest Grove board

Kate Grandusky, Fred Marble face challengers

Both seats up for election on the Forest Grove School Board are contested races.

Incumbents Kate Grandusky and Fred Marble have filed for re-election to Positions 4 and 5, respectively.

Grandusky, who has served one term on the board, has one challenger — Benjamin Aronhalt, a college student.

Two candidates have filed to run against Marble for the Position 5 seat — David Rose and Don Hennig.

Marble has served on the Forest Grove School Board for 14 years. He is a graduate of Forest Grove High School. “This community has been really good to the Marble family,” he said recently. Serving on the board is his way of “paying it forward,” he added.

Rose is retired and Hennig — who is married to Grandusky — lists his occupation as an engineer and project manager.

None of the three challengers have prior governmental experience.

Ballots for the May 19 election will be mailed April 29.
