VERDE VALLEY – Longtime Cottonwood-Oak Creek School Board member Jason Finger has pulled an election packet not only to retain his spot on the school board, but also has pulled an election packet to run for the Mingus Union School Board.
And long-time Mingus Union School Board member Anita Glazar has pulled a packet to join the Cottonwood-Oak Creek school board – but she has not pulled a packet to stay on the Mingus board.
