Six candidates filed to be placed on the April 6 election ballot to fill two open seats on Pattonville Board of Education, however one of the six candidates has since decided that she no longer wishes to be elected to office. Those who filed for the board, in order of filing, are incumbents Jeanne Schottmueller and Dr. Amanda Lieunau Purnell, Brandon R. Wilkes, Tiffany Davis, Nunn Johnson and Monyelle Dotson. Dotson, in a statement to Pattonville, said she no longer wished to be considered for the board, however due to the timing of the election, her name will still appear on the ballot.
