Major shake-up on Fairfield School Board

WINNSBORO, SC (WIS)- Last week we spent a lot of time talking about elections but here is one race that we'd like to break down for you.
     The race for 4 new seats on the Fairfield county schools board of trustees.
     The board - has been under the microscope over the past year - an accreditation agency put schools on probation - accusing the board of micro-managing and high spending. 
     Now - the board has been overhauled - by voters.
     Incumbent and former chair Catherine Kennedy lost to 1989 Fairfield Central graduate Andrea Harrison who says he's hoping to change things.
     Then - in a tight race Bobby Cunningham - who used to do security for the school system beat out incumbent Rickety Johnson by 36 votes.
     Henry Miller is the only incumbent up for re-election that kept his seat - he ran unopposed and then Ron Smith - who has a financial background also ran unopposed - and won.
