Manhattan businessman Frank Beer has become the third candidate to file for a seat on the Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 school board.

According to a Friday news release, Beer intends to campaign on putting parents in control of their children’s public education, honoring taxpayer investments and opposing schools being “used for experiments with societal issues and scientific revisionism.”

Beer has been an active member of the community since 2001, including involvement in multiple organizations and being recognized as the 2006 Community Volunteer of the Year by the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce. He and his wife Jan were the long time owners of the Radio Shack store in Manhattan.

Beer joins Robert Busby and incumbent Kristin Brighton in the school board race. Four seats on the board are up for grabs. The general election is Nov. 7. The deadline to file is June 1.
