Robert G. Stephens (5th District)
Robert Stephens served on the site-based councils for White Hall Elementary and Madison Central High schools for seven years. Stephens was a state trooper for 32 years and was chief of the Richmond Police Department between 2004 and 2007.
Stephens has always enjoyed working in the school system, he said, and thinks the board should be a “good steward of our money while giving the best education we can to our students.”
In light of state funding cuts, “we need to look within and see how funds are being spent and better utilize the finances we have,” he said. “I want to find out where the money is going.”
