A seventh petition to run for the Mitchell Board of Education has been taken out.

Brittni Flood took out a nominating petition from the school business office Friday, according to Joe Graves, superintendent for the Mitchell School District.

Flood joins Shawn Ruml, Debbie Emme, Dwight Stadler, Lacey Musick, Reed Bender and Chris Nebelsick in taking the first step to running for the board. Of the seven petitions taken out so far, Ruml, Emme and Stadler have returned their petitions and had them confirmed to become official candidates for the two positions up for grabs this year.

There are two seats on the five-member board up for election in 2021 — the seats held currently by Musick and Neil Putnam. Musick and Putnam have both stated they will not be running for another term. Both seats are at-large bids, meaning those who file nominating petitions will vie for the same two seats, with the two candidates receiving the most votes filling the positions.

The filing deadline for nominating petitions is 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 30. Petitions may be taken out at the school business manager’s office.


The 2021 Mitchell Board of Education election will take place Tuesday, June 8.
