A Message from Dick Mullenax, School Board Member

Many of you know that I have faced several health obstacles while serving as a School Board member. I realize the energy needed to run a full campaign till November, and have come to the realization I do not have the stamina for that journey. I don’t feel I would have had the physical strength for four more years; therefore, I am withdrawing from the race.
The constituents in District 4 – students, voters, staff members and taxpayers all over Polk -- deserve the best. However, this decision is for my family, and yes, for me. I have enjoyed my eight years and will wait for the next chapter of my life that God sends me. I will finish out my term till November.
