ODESSA-Two incumbents appeared to have secured comfortable victories, but one challenger was the favorite to unseat another incumbent in three contested School Board races after first returns Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Longtime Board member Ed Deife trailed Zach Schafer 230 votes to 153 in the race for Director No. 2.
Schafer, a relationship manager and loan officer for AgWest Farm Credit, had 211 votes to Deife's 142 in Lincoln County. Schafer led 13-7 in Adams County and 6-4 in Grant County, as well.
Deife has been on the School Board for 13 years.
The other Board races weren't close.
