School board races the break the bank

Nearly half of the money that's gone into this year's school board races has gone to the Pierce/Sharpe fight. Unions, advocacy groups and Director of Schools Jesse Register, as well as many others, have pitched in ahead of next week's election day.

Campaign disclosures capturing spending and fundraising activities from July 1 to July 28 show Pierce has also outspent Sharpe. Pierce has spent close to $46,000 in the last month, while Sharpe has spent just under $29,000, both focusing most of their money on mailers and handouts.
