Scott E. Morgan is ready to return to the Lawrence school board. He filed for one of four seats open on the seven-member board. The election will be April 3.
Morgan, 49, filed with about 35 minutes to spare before today's noon deadline.
"I've been thinking about this off and on and been thinking if I can make it work with my business. I think I can," he said.
Morgan operates Morgan Quitno Corp., a publisher of state and city statistical reference books.
He served on the school board from 1999 to 2003 when he lost his bid for a second four-year term by 66 votes, coming in fifth place among eight candidates.
He is the eighth candidate to file for the race. The other candidates are incumbent Rich Minder, Marlene Merrill, Victor Sisk, Robert Rauktis, Michael Machell, Michael Pomes and former school board member Mary Loveland.
