In his first time running for an elected seat, Robert Pelot is challenging Margaret Gamble for the District 6 Lancaster County school board seat.
Pelot, 40, said if elected, there are several matters he would like to see the school board take under consideration.
"I've been looking at bringing the government back to the people for years," he said. "It isn't for the people like it should be."
A case in point, Pelot said, is the issue of taxes.
