School board election and nobody gave a damn to vote

ROSWELL, N.M. The rural southeastern New Mexico town of Hagerman held an uncontested election for three school board seats, but nobody voted. Now what?

The Roswell Daily Record (http://goo.gl/X0pyxj) reports that's what officials are trying to determine.

Chaves County Clerk Dave Kunko said the three candidates needed at least one vote each to be elected. And Kunko said because they aren't incumbents they don't remain in office automatically absent a replacement being elected.

Kunko said he's received legal advice to have the current school board appoint the three candidates for the positions that were up for election.

3. What about the children?

Think how discouraging it must be to go to a school where nobody cared. None of the parents, none of the teachers, none of the adminstrators--no one, nobody.
