Message from David Epling March 5, 2017:
The deadline for a write in candidate campaign has come and gone.
With no candidates other than the 3 incumbents, I am declaring a white ballot.  ; The 3 candidates/incumbents, Kerry Cochran, Greg Elems, and Charlie Spikes are elected by default.
This ends the 2017 FRRS Election process.
