Riley to join Crothersville school board; other seat undecided


Vernon Township voters only found one contested race for the Crothersville Community School Corp. board of school trustees on the general election ballot.

As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, only votes cast that day were available. The full results, including absentee votes, were not available by The Tribune’s 10 p.m. deadline, so look in Thursday’s paper for that information.

Election Day voting shows Chad Ord received 520 votes, or 75%, and Jerad Sporleder earned 173 votes, or 25%, for the District 1 seat.

John Riley was uncontested for the District 4 seat. He received 605 votes.
