In addition to the presidential race, there will be a few statewide and local offices on the ballot for Marshall County voters next year.

The Marshall County Board of Education will have a new member because incumbent Terry Kennamer isn’t seeking re-election.

“It’s just time to retire,” Kennamer told the Tribune Monday.

He’s served two, six-year terms on the board and was recently named board president again.

Kennamer said he’s proud of the improvements made in Marshall County Schools during his 12 years on the board.

Because it’s a presidential election year, Alabama’s primaries will be held earlier than usual. They are usually held in June, but because it’s a presidential year, they will be March 3, which means qualifying will be held early, too.
