FARMINGTON - After a grueling race, voters appeared to have chosen incumbents Randy Manning and Christina Aspaas to return to their board seats on the Central Consolidated School Board.
Aspaas won about 52 percent of the 474 votes, according to the tally. Both board districts are in the Kirtland area. Manning is from Kirtland, and Aspaas from Fruitland. Aspaas beat her opponent, Irene Blue Eyes Claw, to keep her seat. Aspaas currently serves as the board secretary. She also is a single mother, an electrician for BHP Billiton, and a volunteer for United Way. While Aspaas said she was nervous Tuesday, she also said the race was exciting and she looked forward to the future. She added that she will not breathe
SHIPROCK - Christina Aspaas became the newest member of the Central Consolidated School Board on Tuesday.
Aspaas, of Ojo Amarillo, was voted in by a 3-1 vote, with board member Hoskie Benally casting the only opposition vote. There were no abstentions. Aspaas, an electrician and single mother, was up against two other candidates , Nenahnezad's Myron Begay and Kirtland's Randy Jensen, for the District 4 position. "The Obama and Mitt Romney question I didn't think I was going to get a political question like that," said Aspaas. "It was awkward." Aspaas has been an electrician for BHP Billiton for the past 20 years, and as long has been a volunteer for United Way. Her 19-year-old daughter graduated from Kirtland Central High School last year, though she said she hopes to continue supporting the district's push for improved education so other students also can graduate. "The main focus should be the students plain and simple," Aspaas said. Aspaas had limited knowledge of the Common Core Standards, as did Begay, though she said she had some idea of how to better work with teacher unions because of her own familiarity with unions at her own job. Aspaas replaces former board member Dr. Chad Wood, who resigned last month to take a job in Utah. Aspaas is expected to finish out Benally's term, which lasts until the election in February 2013. Aspaas hopes to run for election in February, though she said it could depend on how well she can balance her responsibilities to her job and to the board position. "This is new, so I hope to do whatever I can do bring a positive image back to the school district," said Aspaas.
The candidates include Myron Begay, Christina Aspaas, and Randy Jensen, who in February was banned from district property for threatening members of the board.
The lesser known candidates in the running are Begay and Aspaas. Begay, of Nenahnezad, and Aspaas, of Fruitland, both are concerned parents. Aspaas is an electrician for BHP Billiton, a volunteer for United Way, and a single parent. "Frankly, this position will be a new endeavor for me, however I am eager to broaden my experiences and apply my education as a board member," said Aspaas in her letter of interest.
