Mr. Mason was sworn in on August 1st and will commence with his board duties effective immediately. Mr. Mason will serve until the next general election which will occur in November of 2018, at which time someone will be elected to complete the remaining two years until the term is complete in December of 2020. 

Mr. Mason has previous experience as a member of the Campbell County Board of Education, serving from January 2005 until December 2016.  He was narrowly defeated in the November 2016 election by Judge Tim Nolan, who resigned his post in April 2017.
