Four board seats will be on the ballot in the Nov. 5 general election. Goodvin is the fourth candidate to enter the race, following Monique Scarlett, Dan Greenwell and Miyuki Nelson, the only current school board member seeking re-election.

Veteran Sioux City school board members Mike McTaggart and Jackie Warnstadt in July said they won't run for re-election this fall, while board member David Gleiser is still deciding.

Candidates must file papers by 4;30 p.m. September 19.

Goodvin said he'll work to make sure there is effective and transparent annual budgeting and increased public involvement in the budget process. He also said he'll work to improve fiscal accountability and create a supportive environment for teachers and staff.
