Omaha, NE - A new school board election could cost a pretty penny. Nancy Kratky should know. She's served on the Omaha Public School Board for 18-years and won elections five times. Kratky told Action 3 News if the "Lautenbaugh Bill" passes, she isn't sure she'll run again. The bill would reduce the board from 12 to nine seats. Jennifer Tompkins Kirshenbaum has only served four weeks and faces the daunting task of running again.
Kirshenbaum says, "It was eight months of campaigning ... A lot of people helped me. A lot of volunteers. People gave money."
