Candidate deadline nears

By Press Release

Just three candidates have expressed interest in the three school board seats to be filled in the November election. Unless another candidate steps forward between now and the deadline of Sept. 1, the election may be cancelled.

Incumbents Ron Germann, Director District 1, and Jan Tuin, Director District 5, are currently circulating nominating petitions. Richard Hypio has filed his petition with the county clerk's office, which is coordinating the November election. Hypio is seeking the District 4 seat currently held by Tammy Smith. Smith is term-limited.
