CANDIA -- AS SHE HAS DONE once every three years for the last 15 years, Ingrid Byrd made her way around town Monday, setting up the signs she has always used asking residents to vote for her for school board. And just as in some of those years past, Byrd has found herself in the midst of a controversy in which she has spoken out and voted against what the rest of her fellow board members have wanted.
