VERNON - Vernon voters have lots of choice for the city's four spots on the school board.

There are nine candidates running for the four Vernon trustee positions. In Lumby, there are two school trustee spots and three candidates.

No one ran against incumbent trustee Robert Lee for the one Coldstream trustee position, so he has already been declared the winner.
