There were no candidates in the May 17th election for the Crook County School Board. Two candidates apparently have the "write stuff". Two candidates have garnered some write-in votes; and it looks like they are likely to win the Board seats.  Jess Messner, a local insurance agent in Redmond says he decided to get involved because it's the right thing to do: “I'm very passionate about education. I have 2 kids and one on the way. And I think that the Crook County School District is coming upon a lot of financial decisions, as well as educational decisions that are gunna need to be made. And I'm interested. I want to be a part of the process. I don't want to be a bystander."  Messner says he hopes his example will encourage others to get more involved with the community, because that's the only way things can get back on track. The other write in candidate is Rich Mires. Messner leads with about 83 of the 301 write-in votes. The Crook County Clerk could declare the winners on Friday.
