Five candidates applied for Edwards’ seat: Grant Brownrigg, Guian McKee, Ann J. Smith, Eve Solomon, and Sherman White, Sr.
Each contestant was afforded an opportunity to appear on The Schilling Show. Brownrigg, McKee, and White accepted the invitation. Smith responded but was unable to participate due to scheduling constraints. Eve Solomon did not reply.
Based on analysis of candidate demographics, applicant work experience, community sensitivities, and political inner-workings of the board, The Schilling Show predicts: The Charlottesville School Board will appoint Ann J. Smith to replace Dr. Alvin Edwards.
