New faces on Lacey school board

May 16th, 2015 by Ken

Two new faces will take their places when the North Thurston school board meets next year.  Incumbent members Leah Wells and Laurie Davies chose not to seek re-election.   In their places are two new members.

Not new particularly is Graeme Sackrison,  former mayor of Lacey who filed for the seat previously held by Davies and Dave Newkirk who filed for the seat previously held by Wells.  Neither drew opponents and will run unopposed on the November General Election ballot.

Current school board member Marcia Coppin filed for re-election and drew no opponent.

Sackrison has been a big supporter of Lacey schools and has led the local school levy campaigns for several years.

Newkirk is a former marine, a member of the Hawks Prairie Rotary Club and one of the founders of Lacey’s military family support day.   He has children in Lacey schools.
