GOP candidate for Limestone County Board of Education District 5 Bradley Young secured enough votes to win the primary Tuesday, according to unofficial election results.

The political newcomer received 672 votes or 61.36 percent of the district and will apparently run unopposed in the Nov. 4 election.

“I appreciate all the support,” Faulk said Tuesday. “I’m looking forward to working on the school board in Limestone County.”

Young faced Larry Faulk, who finished with 423 votes and 38.63 percent of the district.

The seat was previously held by Republican James Shannon of Ardmore, who is in the Republican primary runoff for District 1 county commissioner.

Young, a resident of Limestone County, is a graduate of Ardmore High School and Calhoun Community College. He is married to Hope Martin Young and has two children, Kirsten and Copelyn Young. He is a member of First Baptist Church of Ardmore.

“My goal is to work with all members of the school board and provide a community service for District 5 students and faculty for a better education,” he previously told The News Courier.

Young has the opportunity to serve a six-year term.

BOE District 4

The Board of Education District 4 seat was also up for re-election. Republican Ed Winter ran unopposed securing the primary. Darrin Russell who did not seek re-election previously held the seat.
