HAMILTON - Belinda McRae, a Hamilton native and long-time educator, is unopposed in her bid for a seat on the Alabama State Board of Education.
There is, however, non-candidate opposition for McRae—a referendum on the primary election ballot in March to make state school board seats appointed offices instead of elected.
If the amendment passes, all sitting school board members will be removed and Gov. Kay Ivey will begin an appointment process.
McRae, a Republican, remained the only candidate for the District 7 school board seat by the qualifying deadline on Friday, Nov. 8, potentially opening up a walk-off victory for the seat which represents 13 northwest Alabama counties.
