Three seats on the Oregon School District’s Board of Education are up for grabs in the Tuesday, April 4, 2023 spring election.

At their Monday, Dec. 12 meeting, the affected Board of Education incumbents were asked to share their plans for the coming year. Clerk Ahna Bizjak and Board Member Heather Garrison announced their intentions to run for reelection. Vice President Tim LeBrun, who was first elected in 2017, revealed that he is not seeking reelection.

“I just want you all to know how fortunate I am to be on this board,” LeBrun said. “I also believe that we need consistently evolving input. You may have heard me say that, ‘If two people always agree, one of you is probably unnecessary…’ I’m thankful to have had the time to learn and understand the process, and to have had opportunities to make an impact. For me, it’s time to give somebody else that chance.”

Bizjak fills a seat in Area I, which covers the Village of Oregon. Garrison fills a seat in Area II, which covers the City of Fitchburg, the Town of Blooming Grove and the Town of Dunn. LeBrun covers Area III, which covers the Town of Rutland, the Town of Montrose, the Town of Oregon, the Village of Brooklyn, the Town of Brooklyn and the Town of Union.

Anyone interested in running for one of the three seats must officially declare their candidacy by Tuesday, Jan. 3.
