Incumbent Jon Lee is seeking a second term on the Bismarck public school board, he announced Thursday.
Lee was first elected in 2018 and is currently Chairman of the Board.
“I think the experience I’ve gained on the board is invaluable in creating continuity in our district and moving us in the right direction,” he said. “I truly appreciate the work I have done so far, and look forward to continuing to serve in a position that will make a positive difference in the lives of our Bismarck students.”
Lee cited smaller class sizes, support for career and technical education, and a partnership with Bismarck State College to provide dual credit for students as the council’s success.
Lee is the owner of Bread Poets, a local bakery. He and his wife, Juanita, have three children, two of whom are enrolled in the district.
Lee is the second person to announce his candidacy for the board. Businessman Nick Thueson also launched a campaign this week. Three school board positions will be elected on June 14. Board members serve four-year terms.
